Comedian Dies In The Middle Of Joke

November 1983, comedian Joe ‘Pops’ Pooley is headlining his local comedy club and no one’s laughing. February 2013: with your help, his murder is reconstructed. Re-live Joe’s last set over and over and over again. When your time comes, can you die with some dignity?

This is an interactive piece of auto-theatre set in an eighties comedy club devised by Time Out award-winning performer and writer Ross Sutherland. Choose any role in the reconstruction you like: from bouncer, barman, critic, a member of the rowdy party table, or even the comedian himself.

“A Choose Your Own Adventure of a comedy gig… It’s a lot of fun” – The Independent

“Sutherland’s innovative piece of theatre is a true celebration of the audience and what they’re capable of” – ★★★★ The Scotsman

“This is the perfect show for anyone who has ever wanted to be a comedian, heckle a comedian or murder a comedian” – ★★★★ Skinny

“An ambitious, interactive experiment in which the audience is the show” – ★★★★ The Mail on Sunday

“The beauty of the piece lies in the variation and anticipation, the growing awareness that you can shape things – though, of course, as in life, the final outcome is inevitable” – The Stage
