Nice Mum Are Banged In The Slammer
Every evening, we'll have our dinner together, sit down with a drink in hand, and then I'll start the pestering. I'll ask him over and over again, can we do it tonight? Can we? Tonight? It doesn't even have to be for very long - let's just start it, and see where it leads. And every evening, he will eventually give in, and we'll start.
We've been rehearsing for his show, Ladies and Gentlemen.
I take the part of "Kris", and he takes the part of "Dave" and we run through the show, with me occasionnaly unable to speak because I will find something in the script, or something that He Who Only... has added to the script, so unbearably funny that we have to stop and I have to have a quick sip of my drink and re-compose myself. I don't think Kris is in any danger from me taking his place in the show, although I have made it clear to all involved that, if something were to happen to Kris (and I'm not saying that anything would) then I would be very happy to be his understudy. I think I've almost got the accent right, at least.
So, please, gents and ladies, if you're in London town this next week, please join us in the Etc Theatre in Camden. Details below, and follow this link to see the campest photo of He Who Only... that ever existed.
"Nice Mum Are Banged In The Slammer"
As part of The Camden Fringe, Nice Mum present a brand new show about a comedy double-act who get locked in the same prison cell. Surreal, silly, whimsical and frankly obscene, it’s the story of what happens when two young men spend far too much time together.
Expect ruminations on the very nature of freedom and death, expect a ridiculously ambitious escape attempt, expect a whole serious of bad puns about food and expect the cheeky, natural on stage chemistry of Kris Dyer and Dave Marks that has wowed audiences at the Edinburgh Fringe and around the London Circuit for the past five years.
