BY IMPATIENT PRODUCTIONS

John-Luke Roberts returns to the ashes of the Edinburgh Fringe with an absurdist catalogue of infinite possibilities, to be watched and laughed at, with a nice drink, while long-thought extinct beasts rampage through the streets outside. 

Over lockdown, Roberts teamed up with composer John Chambers and Monkey Barrel records to make a brand new comedy record – this is the theatrical reimagining of that show, to celebrate the album’s release. In fact, this is the theatrical reimagining of that show, reimagined to take place inside a shed.

Content Warning: Discussion of mortality

★★★★ “A one-man finger in the dyke against the blandification of Comedy” The Guardian

★★★★ The Telegraph

★★★★ The Times
