This is a show about grief. This is a show about loss. Just not how you’d expect. Dance Like It Never Happened is the funniest, most joyful and uplifting show you will ever see about feeling totally bereaved.
In 2019, we lost another election, our place in Europe and, worst of all, a dearly beloved friend. We are no strangers to grief, but it hurt.
Then in 2020, we all lost the world as we knew it. Our decades-long system of “dealing with emotions” (ignore them, drink heavily and make jokes) finally broke. We finally broke.
In their most honest & personal show yet, Jonny & The Baptists learn to accept and engage with their grief, telling the story of denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance through their trademark blend of silly, joyful songs, deadpan stand-up and riotous storytelling.
★★★★★ ‘Hilarious and moving throughout …. Jonny & the Baptists will make you laugh until you cry and probably cry until you laugh, too. A must-see.’
★★★★ ’Wickedly funny’
★★★★ ”Excellent, irresistible and winningly random”
★★★★ ‘You’ll mainly leave feeling warm and fuzzy…. note perfect’
★★★★ ‘Seriously funny’
★★★★★ ‘Yes, the brilliant musical rabble rousers have certainly given up politics. If only the rest of the Fringe could give it up in this way, we might change the world sooner.’
