Jonny & the Baptists: Eat the Poor

Date:Fri 21 Apr
Time:8pm
Venue:J2
Price:£11.50 (£9 con)

Three quarters of MPs are millionaires. A third of the country lives below the poverty line. Whatever your politics, Jonny & the Baptists think it's worth talking about.

A riotously funny epic about inequality, friendship and betrayal from the multi-award-nominated musical comedians, as featured on Radio 4’s The Now Show and the BBC’s Live at Television Centre.

Setting out to explore the gap between rich and poor, Jonny & the Baptists’ lives turn upside down when Jonny betrays Paddy for financial gain. As Jonny enjoys the highlife with Andrew Lloyd Webber and Jerry Hall, Paddy falls into homelessness and despair.
