UK Virtual Online Tour, Summer 2020
Last year, multi-award-nominated musical-comedy-silly-arses Jonny and the Baptists made a new show about love and their friendship. After a critically acclaimed Edinburgh run, they toured the show to more than thirty cities and towns across the UK.
“We were about to do another run of tour dates when suddenly it became impossible to leave the house and travel around, unless you’re friends with the Prime Minister (we’re not). So we’re taking the show virtually on the road.”
In partnership with some of their very favourite comedy clubs, theatres and arts centers, they’ll be performing the show two metres apart from each other, live from a downstairs room in their (currently shut) local pub. Each show will be performed as if from a different city and venue, via the power of live streaming.
“Even if we can’t actually go there, we can still support our favourite venue’s staff, friends and local audience with a specific version of our touring show.”
Jonny and The Baptists want to extend their friendship and love to you whilst asking for your help in supporting their favourite venues.
This is why The Stand’s Live Stream tickets are Pay What You Want starting from £2 (no booking fee)!
“Your support is appreciated and we can’t wait to see you on Thursday 16 July at 8pm!”
