Dead Funny Tickets

Categories: 

Set in Islington in 1992, Eleanor tries to persuade her husband Richard that they should have a baby. More focused on the recent deaths of two of England’s best-loved comics, Benny Hill and Frankie Howard, than the sexual therapy sessions his wife has signed them up for, Richard and his neighbours celebrate the careers of their comedic heroes, particularly as Richard is one of the founding members of the local Dead Funny Society. Jokes about love and marriage are thrown back and forth with the usual Terry Johnson flare. But these jokes are masking the problems of the central relationship of the piece.

Dead Funny returns to the Vaudeville Theatre starring Katherine Parkinson (The IT Crowd, In The Club, Humans), Steve Pemberton (The League of Gentleman, Benidorm, Whitechapel), Ralf Little (The Royle Family, Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps, The Cafe), Emily Berrington (The Inbetweeners 2, Humans, 24) and Rufus Jones (W1A, Hunderby, The Casual Vacancy).

Our Review

As a genre, comedy is in a constant state of evolution and revolution. But though tastes may change, the often cruel comedy of life remains a constantly churning wheel, and we continue to suffer the same slings and arrows of outrageous fortune and misfortune in the hands we are dealt. Comedy is one way we channel it.
