Following a sold out run earlier this year, and a twice extended UK and Ireland tour, multi-award-winning and trail-blazing comedian, Paul Foot, returns to Soho Theatre with his critically acclaimed Dissolve – his most personal, surprising and ground-breaking show ever.

Final London dates.

“Funnier and more daring than I’ve ever seen him… [has] the audience laughing so hard they’re about to leave their bodies.”
★★★★★ Chortle

Life is a stress: full of rushed breakfasts, angry people, internal conflict, and Jacob Rees-Mogg. But what happens when everything you thought was important – your problems, grievances against others, your very identity – simply disappears?

In the year 2022 AD something momentous changed for Paul, and in this show he will reveal how he discovered the secret of life on the outskirts of Lancaster.* Inevitably he does get distracted by King Tutankhamun, the House of Lords, Sir Cliff Richard, officious lollipop ladies and what Jesus might have achieved if he’d been a plumber.

 

As seen on Would I Lie To You?Never Mind the Buzzcocks and 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown.

*To be clear, Paul discovered the secret of life while he was located on the outskirts of Lancaster. Not the secret to living on the outskirts of Lancaster. There isn’t an answer to that.

Co-written and Directed by Aaron Kilkenny-Fletcher
