It’s show time. The lights are down, darkness suspending the audience in anticipation. Jon is onstage, warmed up and ready to perform a brand-new duo show with his partner, Tim. The lights come up, but Tim is nowhere to be found. Jon has no choice but to attempt to perform all the scenes and sketches from a two-person show, by himself.
How will Jon wear a two-person horse costume, apply sunscreen to his back, or do a trust fall all on his own? Come and witness Jon trying desperately to achieve the impossible!
From comedian and improviser Jon Walpole comes an exploration of loneliness wrapped in a chaotic hour of high-energy physical character sketch comedy that you’ll never forget. Seriously, you’ll be telling your grandkids about this one.
