COMEDY DOUBLE BILL
TWO HOURS OF ORIGINAL SOLO COMEDY
Joanna Neary – Wife On Earth, The Tour
“Character comedy of the highest order” The List
Brief Encounter-inspired Fantasist-housewife Celia (“A pitch-perfect impersonation” Observer) and friends take their Cosmic Shambles Network Podcast on the road with their wife-based gang show.
They’ll be asking ‘what on earth is a wife? And why?’ From the history of wifery, to the wiles and wherefores of when to wife; a dozen wives, (ex-wives, future wives, non wives and anti-wives) wait in the wings at a village hall near you, ready to share their startling stories, while bickering and drinking wine out of a teapot.
A cross section of the world’s wives, here on display for the first time in the history of Earth. (NB – some non-wives and wives will be expressing themselves in dance form). 12+
Ben Moor – Who Here’s Lost?
What do we make with our lives?
An artist worries his work has lost its way. An architect wants to see her buildings a final time. A changing landscape searches for itself.
Who Here’s Lost? is a story about what we value as we go along, and how we present it to others.
It features bubble-wrap, party games, museums and ants.
And ice cream.
So if you’re lost, just think about the ice cream.
Funny, melancholy, surreal, mind-expanding; Ben Moor’s shows aren’t easy to describe, but impossible to forget.
The Scotsman: “As a storyteller he is superb.”
Stewart Lee: “Ben Moor, for my money, is the Ken Campbell/Spalding Gray of my generation, a natural storyteller who blurs the boundaries between comedy, theatre and performance art.”
