Summary

what if i’m not funny though – what if i go out there and i’m not funny

Steve Johnston, guided and inspired by his girlfriend, is a small-time comedian, raw, original and true. Until he’s spotted by an agent, who suggests he could be so much more: his act just needs to change. It’s a Faustian pact. As tension builds over the course of four gigs, so too do the audiences.

Death of a Comedian by Owen McCafferty premiered at the Lyric Theatre, Belfast, in February 2015 in a co-production with the the Abbey Theatre, Dublin, and Soho Theatre, London.
