The Pantomime story of Aladdin and the magic lamp. Widow Twankey, her no-good son Wishee Washee and the Chinese laundry usually provide the slapstick.
Aladdin joins his family - Wishee Washee and washerwoman Widow Twankey - along with the beautiful Princess Jasmine, in this magnificent pantomime filled with slapstick, shouts of ?it's behind you!', hisses, boos, panto dames, and everything else you have come to expect from your annual visit to the Coliseum's traditional pantomime.
Dee, a successful TV writer, arrives at the flat of a man named Stone, having accepted an invitation to discuss a script his 'wife' has written. She is rather surprised when Detective Inspector Hallet, with whom she is having an affair, also arrives, apparently to investigate a matter concerning Stone's 'son' and his involvement with a drugs ring. But where are his wife and son? After many twists and turns, Stone's intentions become clear as he slowly reveals the precise nature of the trio's relationship. It seems that, in their own way, all three are very much concerned with the business of murder, and the play culminates in another perpetration of the crime.
It's just before Christmas and for one struggling family a little bit of Christmas magic is about to change their lives forever.
The double British Comedy Award Winner, RTS Winner and BAFTA nominee is back.
A unique opportunity to see the man himself up close and personal before he embarks on a massive UK tour. Punchlines is Dave's latest comedy project in his long career. Punchlines generally derive their humour from being unexpected - "Punch" indicating that the "Line" should always come as a surprise or shock. The major school of thought suggests that very few Punchlines are inherently funny out of context. There is another school of thought (actually Dave's school of thought) that the opposite can be true. In this new show he will present evidence to support this. He quotes : - "Where do you want your blinds?"/ "It's not my dog" /That's my Thermos flask !". Then of course there are nuns. Nuns in baths, Nuns on bikes and Prince Charles wearing a fox hat. Dave will argue that you don't always need a Punchline for a joke to be hilarious and suggests that if you doubt him, you should ask the bloke with the big orange head.
Perrier nominee 2002.
Jimmy's been described as 'the hardest working man in comedy'. Which, let's face facts, is not that impressive. It's like being the 'Tallest Dwarf' or the 'Healthiest Glaswegian'. Really not that big a deal. Funny Business is Jimmy's brand new stand up show. Come for the witty and incisive musings on the human condition; stay for the dirty jokes. Running Time: Approximately 2 hours and 20 minutes (including 1 interval)
