Funny As Hell

After the week off we are back with a vengeance in the shape of Funny As Hell, the screen version of Goodbye: The Afterlife of Peter Cook and Dudley Moore, which received its world premiere some, three, four, five (?) years ago at P-P and has since toured the world and elsewhere. Written by Johnny Hansler and Clive Greenwood, and starring the very same, it's a wild and zany comedy set in hell, with Mr. Cook having just died, and finding himself in company of his former sparring partner. Think Jean-Paul Sartre meets Beyond the Fringe.

I saw it in its first P-P incarnation, then went along to see it performed at Leicester Square Theatre, so it'll be intriguing to see how it's changed. It's certainly a snappier title. Is it a snappier script? Come along on Monday 6th June, and find out.
