Show type: Edinburgh Fringe 2012

A controversial comedian, a social worker, an injured baby... Punch is a very dark comedy about comedy. Echoes of Russell Brand, Frankie Boyle, Lenny Bruce and a centuries-old tradition of offense abound in this bizarre, taut and wickedly funny two-hander. Reality comes with a thud for one outrageous stand-up when he is quizzed by social services over the condition of his baby daughter and the content of his latest show. Expect dark jokes, fast dialogue and some surprising revelations! A new play by award-winning writer Steven Bloomer featuring Frisky and Mannish's Matthew Jones and actress Kirsty Mann.
