A one hour stand-up show. Eschewing a traditional ‘storyteller’ narrative the focus is instead with exploring the form onstage The show is designed to play with incongruous ideas. Jokes essentially work because they present something different to what we expect, and yet, we know what jokes are, so we are already expecting the unexpected. Therefore, the more you think about humour the more you are see a circularity. Essentially my show will play with this circularity as a tool to drive the show forward. This is firmly in the ‘alternative comedy’ territory. The jokes speak from themselves, a awkwardly paced mess of one-liners, sketches and asides that are meant to show that stand-up is both art and expression in it’s purest form.
