Terry Johnson’s painfully funny play comes to The West Walls Theatre for a limited run. Brought to you by the Off West Award winning Northern Comedy Theatre who have brought DOING SHAKESPEARE and DOING WHODUNNIT to West Walls previously.
Let us take you back to April 1992: Eleanor desperately wants to have a baby but her unwilling husband, Richard is too busy running the Dead Funny Society to care. In the week when British comedy heroes, Frankie Howerd and Benny Hill both kick the bucket, members of the society gather for a fun evening of tribute and celebration. But as the drinks and innuendos flow, life changing secrets are revealed and various skeletons are let out of the cupboard, meaning life for the group of friends will never be the same again.
Complete with custard pies, double entendres, and tributes to some of Britain’s greatest comedians, Dead Funny will make you laugh and cry in equal measure.
So come along and see the funny side!
