Presented by Drunken Chorus

A speech about dead comedians, about forgotten comedians, about every comedian that’s ever been and ever will be.

Chris Williams recites an endless list of all the things that could happen in a comedy act – from fights with the audience, to sing-a-longs, walk-outs and on stage deaths. Drawn mostly from real incidents of failure in stand-up comedy, the show cycles through Andy Kaufman’s numerous fights with audiences, Anthony Griffiths' 10-minute description of his daughter’s battle with cancer, and the ultimate failure of all – the death of Tommy Cooper, live onstage and television.

‘The band at the back of the auditorium could begin to play. And there could be an awkward ripple of applause… And the screen could turn black.’
