Sh!t week to be a Republican

Congratulations, world. Obama is back and I am celebrating by re-streaming favourite episodes of the West Wing and asking myself the hard questions such as: Am I a closet Conservative or is Alan Alda just too wise and witty a choice to play a Republican nominee? That scene where he and Bartlet eat icecream! So charming! I was routing for him - what does that mean??!!

It's hard-hitting political topics such as that that we covered in our set the other night at Lampoon Apathy's US Electiongiggle at Sh!t favourite, Bethnal Green Working Mens Club. It was a great night with a fantastic line-up, although we followed 40 minutes of Matthew Kelly doing his Ghanian TV Executive set, which we found funny but the audience had had enough of by the time we got on. I'm not sure they even appreciated our 'Binders full of women' costumes. On that note, if anyone needs a binder, we have many, many binders now. Please message us. We also brought back our Republican Elephant/ Elephant Man sketch which we haven't done since NYC HOT! Festival in summer 2011:

It's a big week for us coming up with our five day run of Sh!t Theatre present: Sh!t Theatre's JSA (Job Seekers Anonymous) Mark II at The Space, Isle of Dogs. The run begins on Tues 13th until Sat 17th, everyday at 8pm. Tickets are a bit pricey at £14/£10 conc. but you can use the promo code 'anonymous' if you book online to get 25% off. We would really love to see you there! It's the first time we've done a run like this in London, and we are learning a lot, like, how to have a Press Night (bluh?) and We're Supposed to have our Own Technician (muh?) and You Haven't Sold Any Tickets Yet (err?). It's a great venue and we're very excited to play there. Come on down!
Here's the link to more info on the show, on The Space and tickets. There should be an interview with us going up there soon as well:
