See You at the Gallows:
A sordid Christmas soiree at Hull Truck Theatre
Wednesday 14 – Saturday 17 December, 8pm
Age recommendation 16+
Join comedy duo Norris & Parker for an alternative Christmas show full of wild, dark and ridiculous sketches, characters and songs. The show comes to Hull Truck Theatre following their sell-out run at this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
Their host of bizarre and downright rude characters range from the Feminazis, two kale-eating, lycra-clad women in pink wigs, to an 80’s police duo tackling the infamous cases of Barry the Cannibal, the Yorkshire Stripper and the Great Wetherby Mail Thief, with nothing but bubbling sexual tension and sheer incompetence.
There’s also Tish and Tash, who have blagged their way from Australia to the UK and now run London’s No.1 event staffing company, ‘Kitchen Bitches’. They’re passionate about service and are looking to turn struggling artists into superstar members of staff.
The production features live music and an original score composed by Chris Thomson, who also worked with the duo on their show All Our Friends are Dead, and is directed by comedian Steve Hall (BBC 3’s We Are Klang, BBC 2’s Russell Howard’s Good News and Sky’s A League of Their Own).
Norris & Parker became friends at university after discovering they shared the same dark sense of humour (as well as the same birthday). Inspired by The League of Gentlemen, Father Ted, Nighty Night, Brass Eye and Peep Show, they formed a double-act to experiment with their unique brand of sketch comedy.
Norris & Parker are Supported Artists of Hull Truck Theatre.
Mark Babych, Artistic Director at Hull Truck Theatre, says:
‘Norris & Parker are hilarious, a bit like French & Saunders mixed with Catherine Tate in a blender. If you’d rather have some Christmas fun without the tinsel, this is the perfect show for you. It’s a great alternative night out, and a brilliant way to celebrate the festive season with friends. Just don’t bring the children!’
