THE UGLY ANIMAL PRESERVATION SOCIETY

A Comedy Night With a Conservation Twist

Your town needs a minging mascot!

 

Each night has about six acts and an MC (president for life, Simon Watt). All the comedians have ten minutes to humorously champion an endangered ugly species of their choice and convince the audience that their animal should become the society’s emblem. At the end, the audience votes for what is to become the local branch’s mascot.

 

For example, Edinburgh's mascot is the gob faced squid, Winchester's is the Scrotum Frog, Dublin's is the Horseshoe bat.

 

We have gigged in comedy clubs, theatres, zoos, museums, at festivals and more.

You can also book Simon Watt's solo show, Frogs and Friends.

Here, Simon explores why frogs are better than most of the people he knows and how studying them has changed the world. This show has been performed at the Natural History Museum, in London Zoo, and in science festivals, theatres, museums and oddly enough, even a few embassies around the world.
