Jonny & The Baptists Love You & Hate Covid
UK Virtual Online Tour, Summer 2020
FREE (with suggested donations)
LIVE here 7 July, 7.30pm
Last year, multi-award-nominated musical-comedy-silly-arses Jonny and the Baptists made a new show about love and their friendship. After a critically acclaimed Edinburgh run, they toured the show to more than thirty cities and towns across the UK. They were about to do another run of tour dates when suddenly it became impossible to leave the house and travel around, unless you’re friends with the Prime Minister (we’re not).
So we’re taking the show virtually on the road.
In partnership with some of our very favourite arts centres, theatres and comedy clubs, we’ll be performing the show two metres apart from each other, live from the downstairs room in our (currently shut) local pub. Each show will be performed as if from a different city and venue, via the power of live streaming. We’ll be ‘visiting’ the Old Fire Station in Oxford, The Stand Comedy Clubs, Pound Arts in Corsham, Kings Place in London, MAC in Birmingham, The Lowry in Salford, South Street in Reading and more to be announced.
Even if we can’t actually go there, we can still support our favourite venue’s staff, friends and local audience with a specific version of our touring show.
Following booking confirmation you will receive an email on the morning of 7 July containing a link to view the show.
