Comedy Night at Rous Lench Village Hall - "From Here To Absurdity" - Saturday, 16 May, 7:30pm
If you fancy live comedy that’s a bit different to regular stand-up, and enjoy a show that recalls the spirit of Peter Cook and Beyond the Fringe, the satirical sketch show From Here to Absurdity could well be to your taste. To find out more, please visit the comedy troupe's website.
The show lasts for about 90 minutes and comprises about 30 sketches and songs, written and assembled by Richard Kelly –a politics lecturer at Manchester Grammar School and a freelance contributor to Private Eye and the Spectator. The material focuses on the assorted idiocies of modern life, targeting (for example) political correctness, prattish ramblers, rapacious estate agents, irritating telephone salesmen, oily counsellors, brutal gynaecologists, sad round-robin writers, deaf parents, two-faced career women, men who can’t cook, men who can’t speak, birth, marriage, divorce and death.
Following its success at the Edinburgh Fringe, the show has played at the Buxton, Chester and York comedy festivals as well as numerous pubs, clubs and theatres across the country. A series with Radio 4 is currently being negotiated.
