Last year, multi-award-nominated musical-comedy-silly-arses Jonny and the Baptists made a new show about love and their friendship. After a critically acclaimed Edinburgh run, they toured the show to more than thirty cities and towns across the UK. They were about to do another run of tour dates when suddenly it became impossible to leave the house and travel around, unless you’re friends with the Prime Minister (we’re not).
So they’re taking the show virtually on the road.
In partnership with some of their very favourite arts centres, theatres and comedy clubs, they’ll be performing the show two metres apart from each other, live from the downstairs room in their (currently shut) local pub. Each show will be performed as if from a different city and venue, via the power of live streaming.
Even if we can’t actually go there, we can still support our favourite venue’s staff, friends and local audience with a specific version of our touring show.
Please note, this event is ticketed on a donation basis. When purchasing a ticket for this event you’ll see four different price options for you to chose from. All ticket income will be split between Jonny and The Baptists and the venue.
