Alex Edelman - Just for Us

Bostonian comedian. Jew. Sweetheart.

Alex Edelman’s first show, Millennial – about very traumatic stock photos and young people - won an Edinburgh Comedy Award for Best Newcomer, the first show by an American to do so since 1997.

The follow-up, Everything Handed to You - about identity and the availability of plug sockets in airports - was even more acclaimed: selling out its entire Edinburgh run and garnering the second-best reviews of any comedy show at the Festival. It was also filmed in its entirety for a special called Live at the BBC, which is currently available on Netflix.

Just For Us is what comes next. Nominated for the Barry award at Melbourne International Comedy Festival, earning the prestigious Herald Angel award as well as being nominated for the Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Show, it’s about gorillas that can-do sign language and tribalism. Come.

WHY? ‘Boasting technical flair and a precocious authority, Edelman’s comedy manages to capture the voice of Generation Y’ Guardian

‘I fondly imagined this was what it might have been like to watch Jerry Seinfeld when he was in his early 20s. There is no greater praise than that.’ ★★★★★ Mirror

‘Every story is a precision-engineered Rolls-Royce of a routine, perfectly timed and constructed, each morsel of information released just at the right moment’ Chortle

Suitable for ages 14+ years.

Jeeves and Wooster in Perfect Nonsense

A new play adapted from the works of P G Wodehouse 

Written by the Goodale Brothers 

Take your seats with caution! 

Aristocratic buffoon Bertie Wooster has hired the theatre for the night to present his one man show detailing a recent and rather spontaneous series of misadventures, including the theft of a novelty cow creamer and a narrow escape from unwanted matrimony.

The only trouble is Bertie hasn't worked out who's going to play the parts. Will the show be a disaster? Will the scenery stay upright? Or will his trusty manservant Jeeves step in and save the day?

'I have to say I’m finding this acting business rather easy Jeeves! Apart from having to do a newt impression, I think that went tremendously well.'

In a joyous reimagining of the classic P G Wodehouse characters, three actors hurl themselves from role to role as they race to tell the story of Bertie's own farcical adventures.

Jeeves and Wooster in Perfect Nonsense was created by the Goodale Brothers, adapted primarily from P G Wodehouse The Code of the Woosters. After hugely successful runs in the West End, it won the 2014 Olivier Award for Best New Comedy.

Courtyard Theatre
£16 (£14 conc)

Presented by Theatre Chipping Norton and The Barn Theatre.
