Jonny & The Baptists


This event has passed.

A double bill of two shows in one night, from cult multi-award winning musical-comedians Jonny & The Baptists.

Starting with The Happiness Index; a brand new hour of songs and stories about why we are (or are not) happy. Followed by Ten Thankless Years; a retrospective of their first decade making riotous, satirical (and silly) “work”.


The Happiness Index

Are you happy? We can help!

Five Prime Ministers ago, David Cameron started a ‘happiness index’ to measure how joyful the people of this nation are. Which is ironic, given what he then did. Anyway, we’ve picked up the baton and now are trying to find out what the hell we should do with it.

A new personal and political show about our desire, and the country’s struggle, to just be happy.


Ten Thankless Years

The country’s absolute best (but not most popular) musical comedians present our greatest hits, from a decade of being wildly under-appreciated.

After a sell-out, five-star run at Edinburgh Fringe 2023, we’ve understandably decided to take this cash-cow on the road.
