Jonny & The Baptists Love You & Hate Covid
UK Virtual Online Tour, Autumn 2020
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.
After an incredibly successful Leg 1 we’re partnering up again with more 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’ Komedia Bath, Komedia Brighton, Farnham Maltings, Cambridge Junction, The Dukes Lancaster, Firebug Leicester and Orange Tree Theatre in Surrey with 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.
