A show described as a toe-tapping comedy about inequality, homelessness and revolution in modern Britain is coming to Bedford.
Jonny & The Baptists’ Edinburgh Fringe hit Eat The Poor is being staged at the Quarry Theatre on Saturday April 1.
Created through extensive research travelling across the country in early 2016, the show combines contemporary satire and inventive musical silliness with an epic personal story. Setting out to explore the gap between rich and poor, Jonny & the Baptists’ lives turn upside down when Jonny betrays Paddy for financial gain. As Jonny enjoys the high life with Andrew Lloyd Webber and Jerry Hall, Paddy falls into homelessness and despair.
Jonny & the Baptists – real names Jonny Donahoe and Paddy Gervers – have rapidly become one of the UK’s hottest live musical comedy acts. Winning rave national reviews for 2016 climate change comedy The End Is Nigh, they have also enjoyed regular broadcast work, major festival appearances, and once topped the iTunes Comedy Chart with single Farage. Alongside, Jonny has been nominated for a New York Drama Desk Award for his hit one-man show Every Brilliant Thing on international tour, now an HBO special
