On Saturday 24th March we have a great night of laughs for you at Rolling in the Aisles (or RITA, as I’m sure no-one calls it).
Headlining are Jonny and the Baptists, who are back from their sell-out LEFTY SCUM tour with Josie Long and Grace Petrie and are shortly embarking on a new THE WORLD IS A MESS, HERE ARE SOME SONGS national tour.
Tickets are available online HERE, from Waterstones, and on the door.
Comedy band ‘Jonny & The Baptists’ (Jonny Donahoe and Paddy Gervers) make
riotous music, biting satire and anthemic hilarity. They have risen rapidly
to cult-status in the last year, making the finals of the ‘Amused Moose
Laughter Awards’, the ‘2013 New Act of the Year Awards’ and the ‘Musical
Comedy Awards’, and being featured on ‘The Now Show’ (BBC Radio 4), ‘The
Infinite Monkey Cage’ (BBC R4), ‘The Gadget Show’ (Channel 5) and
‘Sketchorama’ (BBC R4)
