Fight in the Dog

The future of live comedy production

Working with Fight in the Dog since their inception, Borkowski provided PR support for their three theatrical productions: Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night with a cast of Comedians, co-founder Liam Williams’ debut play Travesty and Williams and fellow Sheeps member Darran Johnson’s alt-comedy panto Ricky Whittington and his Cat, before providing press office support for the company’s rosters at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe from 2017.

Story

We focussed on Fight in the Dog’s unique production model which borrows from both theatre and comedy models and attracts innovative shows which combine elements of different genres, as well as bolstering and leveraging the profile of the company’s better-known performers to create buzz around their exciting young talent.

All three plays sold out their London runs and in three years the company has grown to be a major part of the media discussion around Edinburgh Fringe comedy and scored massive hits including Dave Edinburgh Comedy Award Winner Jordan Brookes, I’ve Got Nothing in 2019; Jordan Brookes: Bleed and Sheeps, Live & Loud Selfie Sex Harry Potter in 2018 and Tom Ballard, Problematic and Giants: For an Hour in 2017. Shows which have become the buzz debuts of the Fringe have also included Aaron Chen, P*ss Off Just Kidding and George Fouracres: Gentlemon in 2019, Sam Campbell: The Trough in 2018 and Jon Pointing: Act Natural in 2017.
