Jonny & The Baptists: Eat The Poor

No performance info available


A riotously funny epic about friendship, inequality and betrayal from the multi-award-nominated musical comedians. From frontman Jonny Donahoe, co-writer of international hit Every Brilliant Thing.

Setting out to explore the gap between rich and poor, Jonny & the Baptists’ lives turn upside down when Jonny betrays Paddy for financial gain. As Jonny enjoys the highlife with Andrew Lloyd Webber and Jerry Hall, Paddy falls into homelessness and despair.

Previous shows at the New Wolsey Theatre have included the STOP UKIP Tour, Rock the Vote and The End is Nigh.

What the public say

Standard rations of insults suggesting 'leave' voters are brain dead position this duo as total conformists within the world of comedy performers, but leavened with some genuine humour, hard hitting facts, and well performed music.
