Piñata is a DIY cabaret performance evening which I produce. Since 2016 we’ve made monthly shows at Shutterbug in Shoreditch, The Montague Arms (RIP) in Peckham and now The Old Nun’s Head in Nunhead. We also produce one off cabaret events for festivals, such as VAULT Festival Brainchild Festival, both in 2018. We took our first show to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2019 with Gilded Balloon.

Over lockdown we produced three episodes of PinTV, showcases of video sketches and animation from independent content creators and two Alternative Eurovision song contests streamed live on NextUp Comedy. We also shot our first studio comedy pilot Private View, a comedy show set in an art gallery. All of which you can watch on our YouTube channel.

Piñata is produced by a collective which at any point consists of some or all of Michael Julings, Marion Burge, Alice Devlin, Ellie BW, Jimmy Slim, Sian Clarke, Lewis Blomfield and Joe Dunn.
