Johannes Dullin: Come Along and Bring a Friend!

| Aug 2-7, 9-21, 23-26 | 15:20 | 1 hour | 18+ | Johannes Dullin’s comedy is absurd, silly, postmodern and completely unpredictable. The audience laughs – and often doesn’t know why. With his insistent pranks, he infinitely potentiates the absurd, and even the biggest inanities exude existential power in his piece. In Come Along and Bring a Friend!, the brutal poet invites us to a place where the profane plays ping-pong with the profound while reason lies chained under the table. 'Johannes Dullin is a rascal you should take seriously' (Neues Deutschland). 'A magical moment of dadaism and a true discovery' (Der Tagesspiegel).

Scott Capurro: The Trouble With Scott Capurro

| Aug 2-13, 15-20, 22-26 | 21:20 | 55 minutes | 12+ | Scott Capurro is one of nature’s great raconteurs. Challenging, sometimes outrageous, but intimate too and, most shockingly, occasionally full of doubt. In The Trouble With… Scott wrangles with rich friends, worthy yoga and the miseries of home ownership. Capurro shows that every silver lining is attached to a rather imposing cloud, spinning yarns that are meant to resolve issues, but which oddly have the opposing effect. 'Comic equation: Larry Grayson x (Lenny Bruce + Chris Rock) = Scott Capurro' (Guardian).
