Jonny & The Baptists

The Happiness Index / Ten Thankless Years

A double bill of two shows in one night, from cult multi-award winning musical-comedians Jonny & The Baptists. A brand new hour of songs and stories about why we are (or are not) happy; and a retrospective of our first decade making riotous, satirical (and silly) “work”. 

The Happiness Index

Are you happy? We can help!

Five Prime Ministers ago, David Cameron started a ‘happiness index’ to measure how joyful the people of this nation are. Which is ironic, given what he then did. Anyway, we’ve picked up the baton and now are trying to find out what the hell we should do with it.

A new personal and political show about our desire, and the country’s struggle, to just be happy.

Ten Thankless Years

The country’s absolute best (but not most popular) musical comedians present our greatest hits, from a decade of being wildly under-appreciated. 

After a sell-out, five-star run at Edinburgh Fringe 2023, we’ve understandably decided to take this cash-cow on the road.

★★★★★ ‘An hour of glorious chaos. A must-see’ Sunday Post 

★★★★★ ‘A proper belly-laugh show’ British Theatre Guide

★★★★ ‘Wickedly funny’ The Times

★★★★ ‘Excellent, irresistible and winningly random’ The Guardian

★★★★ ‘You’ll mainly leave feeling warm and fuzzy…. note perfect’ Metro

Half Price Tickets Offer | Cost of Living Crisis

These tickets will be sold purely on an honour system – we will trust that those who do not need the discount will not use up the limited supply. We are working on very tight margins, so appreciate people’s honesty.

In response to the current cost of living crisis, Jonny & the Baptists and Exeter Phoenix have decided to set some tickets aside to be discounted for people who may not be able to buy tickets due to financial worries. There are a limited number of tickets discounted per show. We hope this makes the show accessible to those who want to come. We’ve done this in response to the current cost of living crisis and knowing that people are worried about whether they can afford to come to a show.

If you’ve already bought a ticket, we are incredibly, incredibly grateful for your support. We hope you understand that we are trying to accommodate people who would be completely unable to attend otherwise.

The promo code is J&TB502024 (case sensitive). Unfortunately we are unable to retrospectively discount existing bookings.


*Subject to a £1.50 ticketing system charge. We don’t charge this to make a profit. Find out more >>
