Seventy minutes. Seven seasons. One Spike.

Writer and performer Brendan Murphy
Director Hamish MacDougall

Winner: Best One Person Show and Best Comedy Performance at the DarkChat Awards.

Officially the Best Reviewed Comedy Show of Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2023


In this fast-paced new production we bring you the entire 144 episodes of the hit 90s TV show, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, as told through the eyes of the one person who knows it inside out… Spike.

Funny, satirical and bursting with 90s pop-culture references, it’s the perfect parody for Buffy aficionados and those who never enrolled at Sunnydale High alike.

Created by comedian Brendan Murphy whose last show, FRIEND (The One with Gunther), recently won the award for Best Play in the World Wide Comedy Awards.

Recommended for ages 14+. Strong language and adult themes.
