We do comedy with a conservation twist!

Simon Watt has been busy touring The Ugly Animal Roadshow (our family show) around the UK recently.  It is available to go into schools, theatres and to festivals right now.

The Ugly Animal Preservation Society comedy night tours the country bringing each town the chance to elect its own Ugly Animal Mascot.  You can find up and coming gigs here.  We have a regular new material night once a month at the Book Club in Shoredich, London.

Previous acts have includes, Sarah Pascoe, Suzi Ruffell, Ellie Taylor, Raymond Mearns, Helen Arney, Dan Schrieber, Iszi Lawrence, Steve Mould, Jonny Berliner, Sarah Bennetto, Bec Hill, Ian Stirling, Steve Cross, Dean Burnett, Kevin Fong and many, many more.

Simon Watt’s new book, The Ugly Animals- We Can’t All be Pandas is out now and available in all good bookshops in the UK, USA and Bulgaria.

Ugly Animal Book cover

The Ugly Animal Preservation Society is dedicated to raising the profile of some of Mother Nature’s more aesthetically challenged children.  The panda gets too much attention.

Our society needs a mascot, one to rival the cute and cuddly emblems of many charities and organisations. And so I have gathered a terrific line up of comedians who will each champion a different ugly endangered species and at the end of the evening the audience shall vote for what will become our society’s symbol.  It is going to be a great night!

This short film made while we were gigging in Edinburgh sums it up quite well.
