17th and 31st May: Jo Neary and Ben Moor
Jo Neary Presents: Celia’s Guide to being a Wife

Celia and a group of willing volunteers from Toxington North explore a hundred years of Voting And Not Voting from 1918 up the present day.
This thrilling historical talk will celebrate 100 years of some people getting the vote by looking at compelling events across the years from hashtag metoo and making the decision to become gender free, to the alleged changing size of the Mars Bar.
Reviews for Jo’s previous shows =
‘Hilarious off-kilter talent’ Sunday Telegraph
‘character actress par excellence’ Guardian
“IMMACULATE BRIEF ENCOUNTERS PARODY, ENCAPSULATES A LOST AGE OF REPRESSED PASSION, SNOBBERY, LUMPY MARMALADE” Evening Standard
Celia Jesson, repressed housewife, is one of multi award winning character comedian Jo Neary’s best-loved creations. Celia has appeared on Radio 3 last year (The Verb), as well as BBC Online, BBC3, ITV and E4 series Dogface. In 2016 Celia appeared in her own show ‘Faceful Of Issues’ which was nominated for Best Show at Leicester Comedy Festival.

Ben Moor presents PRONOUN TROUBLE
Miscellaneous subjects that crossed my mind while listening to a lecture about Chuck Jones’s Hunting Trilogy (1951-53) (which was nevertheless really good)…

Ben is sitting in a lecture about a series of Chuck Jones cartoons, but his thoughts drift off in various directions.  There’s his friendship with the person he came with, the T-shirts he has at home, his favourite words, his favourite books, and the schism on London’s high streets between the conflicting denominations of launderettes and laundrettes.
And all the while, the lecturer is following her own sweet way, exploring new meanings in the films, quoting obscure academics & offering a different way of looking at the world.
Are any of us following the script?
Aren’t we all in some kind of pronoun trouble?
Using Powerpoint and stand-up, Pronoun Trouble combines a fact-adjacent lecture about three extraordinary cartoons & a whole ton of other topics that sometimes come to mind.

Ben Moor has been producing solo comedy pieces since 1993. His most recent solo show, ‘Each of Us’, was described by The Guardian as “A moving satire on the arbitrariness of the everyday, rivaling the best of Douglas Adams in its witty conjugation of cultural norms and ephemera.”

21st 8pm £8
I’m This I’m That play the wonderful music of Moondog, with special New York Street food for the Festival price (£10), details of which coming soon.

‘I’m This I’m That’ are a 7- piece electro-acoustic band with a line-up that includes Cor Anglais and home-made Frankenbone, (half-French horn, half-trombone) who play the mesmerising music of Moondog, a favourite on the Bom-Bane’s playlist.
Louis Hardin – aka Moondog, was an avant-garde composer, musician, poet and inventor of several musical instruments, who influenced the likes of Steve Reich and Philip Glass, but whose music has also been performed by Julie Andrews.
Also known as The Viking of 6th Avenue, he busked on the streets of New York throughout the seventies.
Review of I’m This, I’m That  The Old Dentist, Chatsworth Rd, London – May 2017
“These 7 apparently normal human beings just took on the orchestrations of the mighty Moondog, in the dilapidated waiting room of a disused dentist’s surgery on my local high street (could it be any more Hackney?) and blew me (and the other people in the room) away. Every member of the band astonished me at some point in the proceedings and I had tears in my eyes more than once at the sheer beauty of what was happening. My phone camera could never do it justice, and it hasn’t, so tough, you should have been there.  Moondog is coming.”  NJ Cannon
