The End Is Nigh At The Unity

A MUSICAL comedy about family, friendship and environmental disaster is on a 40+ date UK tour and will be visiting Liverpool’s Unity Theatre on Thursday 5th May 2016, 8pm. Musical satirists Jonny & The Baptists have announced their most extensive tour to date. This spring, they will travel across the UK with their climate change comedy-theatre crossover hit The End Is Nigh, following the show’s acclaimed Edinburgh Fringe premiere. Playing over 40 venues across two months, it marks their biggest tour yet and visits Liverpool’s Unity Theatre exactly one year after they appeared at the venue the day after last year’s general election with Rock The Vote. Last year, Jonny accidentally told his four-year-old niece that climate change would end the world. To stop her crying, he and Paddy promised to fix it. They really tried very hard… The new show offers their most personal – and apocalyptic – venture to date. Featuring all the hallmarks of their success from barnstorming satirical rock to flights of silliness, the show blends comedy, theatre and rock gig in a captivating story of family, friendship and environmental disaster. Jonny & the Baptists have been regulars on BBC Radio 4’s The Now Show, topped the iTunes Comedy Chart with the single ‘Farage’, supported Mark Thomas on tour and recently appeared on the BBC’s Live at Television Centre. Alongside, Jonny Donahoe has been nominated for a New York Drama Desk Award for his hit one-man show Every Brilliant Thing on international tour, while Paddy Gervers has grown a cult following for acclaimed podcast ‘Podshambles’.
