Alan Committie is (still) alive with the…‘The Sound of Laughter’.
That is the name of the comedian’s new festive season stand up show, which premieres at The Theatre on the Bay on Wednesday, December 3, and will run until January 17.
As a 40 year old comedian with slightly greying hair, Committie is trying to be a little more serious about his comedy. Which essentially means its new material, but the same suit.
Covering everything from Selfies to Christmas Elfie’s; Banting whilst bunting; the final say on the Pistorius trial; a beautifully nuanced recreation of ‘The Sound of Music’…in eight minutes; a powerful, if ineffective examination of War Horse and why it cannot solve the Middle East Crisis; and special appearances by Johan van der Walt and demotivational speaker Trevor Tahor; it promises to be an evening of zany entertainment as only Committie can provide.
If you book now, Committie will throw in an interval somewhere in the middle of the show for free. Except for the drinks. And snacks.
Committie will take to the stage for a lively, merry evening of mirth in the tradition of previous shows like ‘No, Seriously?’, ‘Happily Ever Laughter!’, ‘Fully Committied’ and ‘Bigger! Better!! Faster!!!’.
And with a one-man show at the Edinburgh Festival; mingling with the stars at the Emmy Awards in Los Angeles and a season as Wishee Washee in ‘Aladdin’ at the New Wimbledon Theatre – the “Home of London Pantomime” – behind him, Committie is bound to have a lot of stories to tell. And he has lots to ruminate over on turning 40. But the less said about that, the better.
