Brainiac does morning and afternoon performances (10.30, 12.30, 14.30, plus 16.00 on Sundays), and Derren Brown does evening performances. Both (I assume) have relatively simple sets.

Brainiac is on the left of the stage, Derren Brown on the right. Make sure you book for the correct half.

Derren Brown is the main show so get the marquee space whereas Brainiac is daytime only so only get a little sign. Nimax do a number of daytime theatre shows at their theatres plus one nighters, other theatres tend to only hire the theatre on Sundays or the equivalent dark day.

I have seen a pic with brainiac getting a full marquee sign, I was just curious, seems really awkward having to change the signs, must be time consuming

They had 'Horrible Histories -Barmy Britain' sharing with 'Chicago' at the Garrick last Summer. They just used the front of the stage and it was quite a basic two hander comedy show anyway. Very clever use of space & doubling up of theatres and it's to be applauded.

I walked past there the other day. Derren Brown has the big sign at the front, and the sign for Brainiac is on the side of the marquee. I guess you could photograph it from the right angle and it would look like Brainiac had the full sign, so maybe that's what you saw?

I used to wonder where Graham Linehan and Steve Delaney get their ideas for Count Arthur Strong.
