Absolute Monopoly

Absolute Monopoly is my debut comedy hour.

If I were to describe it, it would be as a “fucked gameshow”.

Monopoly is a terrible game. It ruins friendships and destroys families. This interactive extravaganza will update it for the modern world to make a game that’s more competitive, more aggressive and will destroy even more families.
Join comedian Benjamin Alborough as he attempts to improve Monopoly in this chaotic, interactive gameshow where audience members compete against each other and the host, with the audience physically becoming the game board.
The show combines role playing, physical challenges and psychological intimidation to make something that, if not the best board game in the world, is at least short.

I’ve taken it all over the country including; Weirdos Weekend LCF 2022, Museum of Comedy, Cambridge Fringe, The Electric Arcade, 2Northdown, Brighton Spiegeltent and many more.

Upcoming dates include the Brighton Spiegeltent and the Penge Comedy Festival.

Then I’m taking it to Assembly Festival for the Edinburgh Fringe.

“Benjamin Alborough commanded audience attention with a game show host charisma, which made his audience comfortable enough to heckle and yet terrified to go for a piss.”⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Edfringe Review

“Satirises the depressing reality of an unaffordable housing market with goofy and innocent stunts egged on by crowd heckling. He works with the crowd to mock capitalism, neoliberalism and ridicule one another– so come prepared to get involved” ⭐⭐⭐⭐- Binge Fringe
