Jo Neary & Friends
8PM (DOORS 7.30PM)
A TOP QUALITY NIGHT OF CHARACTER COMEDY FROM SOME OF THE COUNTRIES LEADING CHARACTER ACTS. NEW MATERIAL, A UNIQUE NIGHT OUT.
Joanna’s much loved Joanna Neary and Friends Night is delighted to transfer to the Komedia after months of sell-out highly original and much feted nights previous.
Shows so far have featured folk singing flash mobs, a dog in a box, sea bass being prepared for the audience on an ironing board, TV comedy stars trying new material and tons of brand new characters, trying, sometimes succeeding, sometimes failing, live music, accidental lap dances and hysterical crying with laughter. The audiences have quite a nice time too.
With live music by Pad Mclean.
On Joanna Neary:
Neary is a character actress par excellence, not only are her characters well observed and immaculately performed, but they are well written and, most importantly, funny.
A Joyce Grenfell of our age. (Guardian)
On Dyball & Kerr:
Characters so real they’re almost scary and as perfect a night out as your pennies will buy.(Stage)
On George Egg:
‘a hugely entertaining variety turn’ (Guardian)
