Side-splitting comedy from an outstandingly talented cast
Set in Islington in 1992, Eleanor (Katherine Parkinson) tries to persuade her husband that they should have a baby. Richard (Steve Pemberton) would oblige if he could, but he's too busy running the Dead Funny Society. When British comedy heroes Frankie Howerd and Benny Hill turn up their toes in the same week, the society gather for a celebration of hilarity and laughter. But Eleanor’s grin masks a grimace. When your marriage is deader than either Morcambe or Wise it can be hard to see the funny side of things. Terry Johnson’s painfully funny comedy returns for a strictly limited season this autumn with Katherine Parkinson (The IT Crowd), Steve Pemberton (The League Of Gentlemen), Ralf Little (The Royle Family), Emily Berrington (The Inbetweeners 2) and Rufus Jones (Hunderby). Suitable for mature (age 16+) audiences only, due to strong language and mature themes. Runtime: 1 hour 55 minutes, including an interval.
