Beyond The Joke: The Way You Tell Them: Rachel Mars
Rachel Mars has always relied on humour. After 32 years, 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?
Turning the spotlight on the inner workings of comedy, The Way You Tell Them interrogates the desire and sometimes uncontrollable compulsion to be funny. In her latest solo performance, Rachel goes in search of what is beyond the gags, jokes, and pratfalls.
Using real-life material, classic oral sex jokes and a wolf suit, she weaves a thoughtful and provocative story that questions how we use and abuse humour.
[Insert funny punchline here]
Rachel Mars has a background in theatre, live art and comedy. She uses the autobiographical as a starting point to create performances that are funny, intimate, rude and sometimes heart-breaking. Rachel makes performance work as a solo artist, collaborates with a range of artists including Nat Tarrab as mars.tarrab, curates programmes of art for the JCC for London.
