A great run of comedy gigs continues at Royal & Derngate with another week of top performances kicked off by David Baddiel on Monday 27 September, Geoff Norcott on Tuesday 28 September, Jonathan Pie on Friday 1 October, and two home performances from Andrew Bird on Friday 1 and Saturday 2 October.
Following his five-star, Olivier-nominated hit, My Family: Not the Sitcom, David Baddiel returns to the stage with a new one-man show, Trolls: Not the Dolls. David has stories to tell of the dark, terrible and hysterically absurd cyber-paths that interacting with on-line trolls have let him down.
Geoff Norcott’s fourth national tour, I Blame the Parents, brings him to Royal & Derngate for the first time, with a brand new show that will mostly explore personal responsibility, parenting and who should take the blame when things go wrong.
Jonathan Pie’s acclaimed sell-out show Fake News finally returns, updated and remixed for a post-Corona world. After months stuck in lockdown, Jonathan, the exasperated news reporter whose videos regularly go viral, returns to the road to discuss how Corona has changed the world… and his career prospects.
Following a successful debut tour culminating at The Leicester Square Theatre and a recording of a sold out hometown gig, Andrew Bird is back with a brand new show, Invincible. Andrew grew up in Towcester, Northants, and the first comedy night he ever went to, two days before turning 18, was Screaming Blue Murder, the comedy club night at Royal & Derngate. He has since regularly appeared at the night himself and supported Rhod Gilbert and Rob Brydon in the main theatre.
After the traumatic event of seeing revered, legendary comedian Ian Cognito literally die on stage of a heart attack in front of him and the fall out making global news, Andrew says it’s hard to take anything seriously. His show features brutally honest stand-up with free-flowing stories and opinions on Prince Andrew learning Slovakian, “millennial grandparents” and how the people you look up to seem invincible.
