It's been claimed that one-time Never Mind The Buzzcocks presenter, Simon Amstell,started his TV career at Nickoledeon where he was fired for making pop stars uncomfortable, and that he then began presenting the Channel 4 show, Popworld - where he gained a huge following for his groundbreaking work in making pop stars uncomfortable!
Graham Fellows has a long-running reputation for innovative, offbeat comedy. From his brief brush with pop stardom - Jilted John's self-titled hit ("Gordon is a moron") - to John Shuttleworth, his razor sharp portrayal of a somewhat nerdish fictional singer-songwriter and radio presenter.
Both headliner Lee Mack and support Mike Gunn were able ride a wave of goodwill, at the Brighton Centre, on Sunday 28th October 2014.
After two years away the most popular ice show in the world, Holiday on Ice, is returning to The Brighton Centre  for one week only with their 70th anniversary show Platinum, featuring Dancing on Ice All Stars winner, Ray Quinn. **(See competition below).
Glyndebourne opera house has announced the winners of its 2014 Tour Art Competition, unveiling three, contemporary female artists of the future.
Following its successful pilot in spring 2014, Umbrella Club - Brighton Dome's membership club for children and young people with life-limiting conditions and their siblings and carers – is to be rolled out across performances (suitable for under 16s) for the Dome's autumn season.
Young people all over Brighton are being given the chance to take part in a memorable and educational cinematic experience as part of the Into Film Festival - the world's biggest youth film festival - when it comes to cinemas across the region.
There was nothing Kate Bush about Lee Evans' return to Brighton, on Tuesday night (26th August). His was a simple set design; no fish heads, no flying and no song cycles. 
John Cooper Clarke's biting, satirical, political and very funny verse, delivered in a unique rapid-fire performance style, resonated with the punk movement of the late 1970s.
A new acting school backed by Dakota Blue Richards, the star of The Golden Compass film, that will give children and teenagers the training to work professionally in stage and screen, has been set up in Brighton. 

South East Dance has won funding to continue to lead innovative dance projects in Brighton's Circus Street over the next two years, helping to improve the emotional and physical wellbeing of people in one of the country’s most deprived wards. 

This Big Ass comedian – if we are going by the name of her hit sketch comedy show – is certainly talented. A successful stand-up and with a novel to boot, Katy Brand has somehow found the time to appear in Walking on Sunshine, this summer's hit rom-com sing-along. 

Following the postponement of the planned last ever performance of Bryony Kimmings' Credible Likeable Superstar Role Model, new dates have been announced for 23 and 24 July at Brighton Dome.
