Rich features in Episode 2 of The Rebel, starring Simon Callow, on Gold – next Wednesday at 10pm…
The washed-up boy band of sketch comedy are returning to Soho Theatre with their first new show in four years. Now in their thirties and with no other career options they have decided to abandon their wives, jobs and in one case their child, to jump back in the gimpy saddle.
Strap yourselves in for a blistering hour of dark sketches, dirty songs and disgraceful nudity. It’s the ultimate alternative Christmas party.
“A riotous, rollicking, all-singing, all-dancing celebration of bad-taste comedy”
“The sketches are amazing. The songs are hilarious. The collective atmosphere is intoxicating. You will laugh until you hurt, and then plough on through the pain. I genuinely cannot recommend it enough.”
“Pacy, punchy and with a good line in dirty … perfectly formed pearls of comedy”

‘Instructions for American Servicemen in Britain’ the hit show from the Real MacGuffins and Fol Espoir is back!
It’s a rib-tickling new comedy that has been reducing audiences to silliness all over the country and after two national tours in 2015 and 2016 it comes to London in July 2017.
If you’re looking for a great night out in central London, look no further than this critically acclaimed London theatre show, highly recommended by audience members young and old. A rip-roaring comedy for all age-groups, a delight for American tourists and Britishers alike, this hilarious comedy has been entertaining audiences across the country. Now it comes to London’s Jermyn Street Theatre, located just a few steps away from Piccadilly Circus, one of London’s most famous landmarks, with a wide selection of restaurants nearby for a pre- or post-theatre meal, or maybe just a good, old-fashioned cup of tea.
