Brighton Festival: The Way You Tell Them: Rachel Mars
Rachel Mars has always relied on humour. After 32 years of life, she knows that if anything goes wrong she can remedy the situation with a joke. But what would happen if she couldn’t fall back on laughter?
In her latest solo performance, Rachel searches for what lies beyond the gags, the jokes and the pratfalls and weaves a thoughtful and provocative story that questions how we use and abuse humour. The Way You Tell Them interrogates the desire and the compulsion to be funny, using real-life material, classic oral sex jokes and a wolf suit to turn the spotlight on the inner workings of comedy.
Suitable for over 16s.
