Dead Funny

27TH OCTOBER 2016 - 4TH FEBRUARY 2017
Design by Richard Kent

Terry Johnson's 'Painfully funny and funnily painful' (The Times) comedy, DEAD FUNNY returns for a strictly limited season at the Vaudeville Theatre in London. 

The cast includes Katherine Parkinson (The IT Crowd, In The Club, Humans), Steve Pemberton (The League of Gentlemen, Benidorm, Whitechapel), Ralf Little (The Royle Family, Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps, The Cafe), Emily Berrington (The Inbetweeners 2, Humans, 24) and Rufus Jones (W1A, Hunderby, The Casual Vacancy).

Eleanor wants a child. Richard would oblige of he could, but he's too busy running the Dead Funny Society. 
When British comedy heroes Frankie Howerd and Benny Hill turn up their toes in the same week, the society gather for a celebration of hilarity and laughter. But Eleanor's grim masks a grimace. When your marriage is deader than either Morecambe or Wise, it's hard to see the funny side of things...

DEAD FUNNY will be running at the Vaudeville Theatre from Thursday 27th October 2016 until Saturday 4th February 2017. For more information and to book tickets, click here
