Go Faster Stripe to record four new alt comedy specials
All the shows will be taped at the Moth Club in Hackney, East London on Sunday July, 16.
2pm: Terry Wogan Screams. Terry Wogan has returned from Hell to revive his light entertainment career. They tried to stop him but they couldn’t. Wogan (Benjamin Alborough) attempts to revolutionise the game show format while being supported by shiny floor comedian Sean Morley. No-one really knows what’s going on.
4pm: Joz Norris: Blink. Former comedian-turned-legendary magician Joz Norris has perfected the hardest magic trick of all time – making an entire audience think, and blink, in unison. With the help of his glamorous assistant Ben Target, he’s got absolutely everything figured out this time. Nothing can possibly go wrong.
7pm: Joz Norris Is Dead. Long Live Mr Fruit Salad Joz Norris has retired, or possibly died, who cares? All that matters is that Mr Fruit Salad, a fictional chimaera he created as a form of self-care, has developed autonomy and is putting on a solo show. An absurdist meditation on anxiety and grief performed by an idiot from Pontefract who doesn’t exist. Winner of the Comedians’ Choice Award for Best Show 2019. Nominated for the Malcolm Hardee Award for Comic Originality and the Chortle Award for Best Music & Variety Act.
9pm – John-Luke Roberts: A World Just Like Our Own, But… – There’s a world just like our own, but there isn’t a word for sand. There’s a world just like our own, but the keys on pianos are in random order so pianists really have to work for it. There’s a world just like our own, but Edith Piaf regretted five things. John-Luke Roberts presents a show about all the worlds we don’t live in, which is sneakily about the one we do.
Tickets for each show are £5.50, or an all-day ticket to all four shows is £16.50, available here.
