Standup comics making theatre. Theatre artists making shows that look like standup. Serious stuff by funny people and funny stuff by serious people. CPT’s Beyond the joke festival celebrates what happens when standup and theatre meet. When art and entertainment, jokes and deadly seriousness vie for the mic. The festival also features performances Emily’s Very Sad Play by standup Sara Pascoe, The Price of Everything by theatre-maker Daniel Bye, and new work from Julian Fox, The Two Wrongies, Jamie Wood, Bush and McCluskey and many more.
