|Four exciting comedians celebrate everyday heroism in a show full of
afternoon fun! Join Helen Arney, Broderick Chow, Tom Goodliffe, and Nat Luurtsema for
laugh out loud stories of heroes: heartfelt or horrific, but always hilarious.
This is a show about four people who want to be
Four people with no discernible skills. Except the ability to
make people laugh - but from bitter experience we know the Job Centre doesn't recognise
this as a skill.
We're: Broderick Chow (semi-finalist Amused
Moose LaughOff 2008) Helen Arney (semi-finalist Funny Women 2008) Nat
Luurtsema (Chortle Best Newcomer nominee 2008, finalist Funny Women 2007 and
Laughing Horse New Act of the Year 2008) and Tom Goodliffe (finalist You
Must Be Joking, Newbury Comedy Festival 2008)
Yes, that's all well and good, but it doesn't make us heroes,
We've never saved a baby from a burning building, or stopped
a speeding train with one finger, or even saved the planet a little bit (recycling doesn't
count) and, given our limited skills and poor time management, neither are we likely to.
So our motto is: "Achievable Goals."
Shout it while punching the air, it sounds a little bit more heroic like that. Go on.
Homework for Heroes celebrates tiny acts of heroism that are
often overlooked for flashy nonsense like a bloke pratting about in a leotard. We want to
find the heroism around us and inside us (don't be childish) in just under an hour. There
will be jokes, stories, games and heroic deeds - basically a big bucket of afternoon fun.
And definitely no leotards.
"To be an everyday hero, you don't have to wear
your pants on the outside. But sometimes it just feels right."
