WAITING FOR GADDOT (2015)
Richard Gadd is late. For his own show. Fuck. Shit.
At least he has his idiot techie to tide things over until he arrives. The security guard fancies a go at comedy too, so we can always put him on the stage for a bit. Fuck it, we’ll even throw the heckler on. Anything until Gadd arrives. Just. Got. To. Keep. The. Audience. Here.
Featuring comedy stalwarts Ben Target, Ian Smith, and Edward Aczel and stars of screen Lesley Joseph, Kathryn Drysdale, Ricky Grover, and Laila Hoffman – this show asks the question…
Just how long are you willing to wait for Gadd?
Waiting For Gaddot debuted at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August 2015 and later transferred to the Soho Theatre in London for a three week run. It also appeared at the Glasgow International Comedy Festival and the Machynlleth Comedy Festival.
