    ARCHIVE: Jonny & The Baptists: Eat The Poor

    • SHOWING

    About

    A brilliantly funny epic about friendship, inequality and betrayal from the multi award-nominated musical comedians.

    Three quarters of MPs are millionaires. A third of the country lives below the poverty line. Whatever your politics, Jonny & the Baptists think it’s worth talking about.

    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.

    Returning after several hit shows, we’re really pleased to welcome Jonny & the Baptists back to Bristol for the first preview of their 2017 tour – a hilarious, heartfelt and vitally important new show from the acclaimed stars of Radio 4’s The Now Show and the BBC’s Live at Television Centre.
