Richard Gadd is not a happy boy. In the space of one solitary week, he has lost his girlfriend and his job, faked his mother’s death, acquired a stalker, and found himself performing sexual-favours on his former boss for money. Worse still, he has a Soho Theatre show coming up which he is hopelessly under-prepared for. Yes, Richard Gadd is inches away from a full-mental breakdown. His psychiatrist insists he pulls out of the show. But Gadd has other ideas…
One of the UK’s most exciting, unique, and troubled new comedians, Richard Gadd (Winner, Laughing Penguin New Act of the Year 2011; Finalist, Chortle Student Comedy Awards 2011) brings his critically-acclaimed, sell-out Edinburgh Fringe show to Soho Theatre.
Directed by Gary Reich.

‘Utterly batshit, frequently horrifying, and often ecstatically funny… you won’t find many shows more memorable than this.’
★★★★★ Informed Edinburgh
‘Deranged, nihilistic, self-abasing… Gadd unravels beautifully and awfully in front of us. It is cruel to laugh. But we do. Oh yes we do.’ ★★★★ Scotsman
‘Wonderfully dark and disturbing, funny, quick-witted, and sometimes just plain weird.’ ★★★★ Broadway Baby
