Produced and presented by Becky Fury
Hosted by The Cockpit
Waiting for Guido is an innovative, comic, theatrical, experimental, extravaganza!
Fusing comic improvisation from world class performers Trevor Lock (Lee and Herrings 'This Morning with Richard not Judy) "A masterclass in comic performance" ***** The Scotsman
with the skills of new kids on the block- Geoff Steel (oioi comedy new act of the year 2017) and Gaullier graduate, House of Idiot master of ceremonies Johnathon Richardson.
The skills of these phenomenal performers will be showcased in a basic story structure inspired by Waiting for Godot, Dada and Alan Moore's 'V for Vendetta.
We present Waiting for Godot, Jesus, and the Easter bunny waiting for the return of the spring chicken. The enigmatic and insurrectionary battery chicken, Guido.
With a little sprinkling of circus performance to add a little panache to proceedings courtesy of stunning contortionist and rope and hoop expert Avital Hannah, and 'musical comedy genius' Robert White providing an improvised musical score.
We present an evening of entertainment from performers happy to engage with a live audience, theatrical innovation and carefully curated chaos.
Expect the unexpected and then expect some more.
Monday 12th February - 7:15pm
