Tickets are selling fast for the comedy sensation that is Jonathan Pie, who’ll be doing a warm-up gig at Bridport Electric Palace on Wednesday 7 February next year, ahead of his brand new 2018 UK tour, Back To The Studio.
Jonathan Pie is the frustrated news reporter that satirises the world of politics and the media.
A frustrated news reporter known for venting his spleen in unguarded “off-camera” rants, his online videos have been viewed by millions worldwide.
As an old-school leftie, Pie’s anger is usually directed towards the Tories. But he has also been known to question the tactics of the left, which has got him into trouble from time to time.
Pie is the brainchild of actor Tom Walker, who first brought the character to life in September 2015. He became a viral hit when he famously ‘lost it’ outside the Houses of Parliament, and his fan base has continued to gain momentum ever since. He has recently finished a UK tour of his live show, culminating in a sell-out show at the London Palladium.
Tom’s co-writer is comedian Andrew Doyle, who started writing for Pie in December 2015. Since then they have collaborated on the live show, various pieces for television and radio, and weekly online videos including a response to the US election result which has had in excess of 130 million views.
At the Bridport show, Pie will be testing out new material from his forthcoming show, Back to the Studio.
The frustrated news reporter is back and he’s angrier than ever. Pie attempts to host a night of serious discussions on current affairs whilst simultaneously attempting to smash the system from within. Join him for a night of political comedy that soon descends into chaos.
Jonathan Pie is at Bridport Electric Palace on Wednesday 7 February at 7.30pm prompt – latecomers will not be admitted. Tickets are £15 (plus booking fee) in advance from the box office on 01309 428354 or Bridport Tourist Information Centre on 01308 424901. The show is not suitable for under-16s.
