John-Luke Roberts: After Me Comes the Flood (But in French) drip splosh splash drip BLUBBP BLUBBP...

Sat 25 Jan • 8pm • Full £10 • Comedy

The critically acclaimed idiot John-Luke Roberts returns to the road with another ridiculously long titled show.

In a brand-new hour of extraordinary daft-hearted comedy, expect to not know why you are laughing once more… even when he gives you the punchline first. Jokes about staring into the Nietzschean void, the stupid decisions of kings and how Pinocchio can save the world all might make appearances in this hour of absolute silliness. But then again, maybe they won’t. Who knows what could happen!

The Story of Christmas

Thu 12 Dec – Sun 23 Dec •  Prices Vary • Professional Theatre

By Ian McGlynn

The Story of Christmas is long and complicated and hotly debated by serious historians. Luckily, this Yuletide, you can experience the short, simple and seriously funny version! 

The Rondo presents a family Christmas show packed full of songs, jokes, silliness and Festive frivolity, as we take a rip-roaring comedy ride through history to look at the weird and wonderful origins of some of our barmy Christmas traditions – and meet some of the whacky characters who invented them! 

So come along to The Rondo this Christmas and celebrate mistletoe, mince pies, turkey, presents, tinsel, crackers, Father Christmas (or is it Santa Claus?), Christmas carols, Christmas pudChristmas cards, Christmas Trees, Christmas cake – in fact, EVERYTHING Christmassy in the whole world ever! (Except Brussel Sprouts. We’re a Sprout free zone.) 

The Story of Christmas – the most fun you can have south of the North Pole. 

Times and Prices Vary – Please click Book Now for details

 Relaxed Performances  

Christmas shows should be for everyone – and The Rondo is committed to accessibility, with several Relaxed Performances of The Story of Christmas. Relaxed Performances are for everyone, but lighting is less harsh, house lights remain on and audience members are free to make noise and move around the theatre. A breakout area will be available in the foyer. The only rule is: no shushing! 

Big Scream!  

Big Scream performances accommodate very young children – these performances will operate a ‘Babes in Arms’ policy which means that a child of 18 months or younger does not need a ticket providing they can be held by a parent/guardian.

Simon Munnery: Alan Parker Urban Warrior Farewell Tour

Thu 9 Apr • 8pm • Full £14 • Comedy

Presented by Show and Tell

Multi award-winning comedian Simon Munnery reprises his notorious alter ego, the bedsit anarchist Alan Parker Urban Warrior. Once the most radical, now the only radical, Alan returns with the old gold, the old truths, and some new truths (based on the old truths).

For over 35 years, Munnery has performed around the world, experimenting with and innovating the stand-up form. In the 1990s, his Alan Parker: Urban Warrior character took the comedy circuit by storm, garnering Munnery his own BBC Radio 1 series, which Time Out London called ‘the funniest thing on Radio One’ and a residency on ITV’s Saturday Live. 1996 saw him collaborate with Graham Linehan and Stewart Lee for BBC2 show, London Shouting, in his Alan Parker guise, and the character also become a regular contributor to NME magazine.

“Gloriously inept radical anorak.” The Times
“Marx, Engles and Sid Vicious would all have died laughing.” The Guardian
“Munnery’s parody of a punk rock anarcho snowflake, hand drawn with real love for its subject, returns to a world worse than any he could have imagined in his home decade of the 1980s.”  Stewart Lee

Simon Munnery is a British Comedy Award nominee, Perrier Award nominee, Sony Radio Award winner and Chortle Award winner. He’s most recently appeared in C4’s acclaimed Flowers, and will soon be seen in Will Sharpe’s Louis Wain movie biopic, co-starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Claire Foy.
