After a successful run in Edinburgh, Joakim Gunby is taking his one man show ‘Why Even Bother’ to Showbox.
In this dark, audio-heavy, one-man comedy, we get a glimpse into the world of ’MAIN CHARACTER’ and the everyday struggles of his ’normal’ life. This performance focus on what it’s like being a young foreigner in London, and how to keep going when life keeps kicking you in the balls.
Performed in english.
“If you’ve lived through your twenties or are on your way, you will resonate with this techno-emotional cocktail. It’s a tour de force that will leave you with tears in your eyes and a huge appreciation for Gunby’s creative talent.” – Colorado Pam
The Scotland Outlier
Even the best of us will end up asking ’Why even bother?’ when faced with ‘CO-WORKER’ and his collection of cat pictures, or when ’FLATMATE’ greets you with:
“We’re out of food. I’ll be in my room watching Amish MILF porn.”
This piece of new writing is relatively absurd and stands out from most other comedy shows in regard to its use of sound and voice-over.
Joakim uses his voice-over talents and experience to create and embody the variety of characters featured within it. The show creatively combines audio and physical performance, providing a refreshing take on the subject matter.
Probably unlike anything you’ve ever seen!
