Ben Moor and Izzy Mant

DOUBLE BILL OF PRONOUN TROUBLE AND POLITE CLUB
PRONOUN TROUBLE - BEN MOOR
 

Ben is sitting in a lecture about a series of Chuck Jones cartoons, but his thoughts drift off in various directions.
There’s his friendship with the person he came with, the T-shirts he has at home, his favourite words, his favourite books, and the schism on London’s high streets between the conflicting denominations of launderettes and laundrettes. 

And all the while, the lecturer is following her own sweet way, exploring new meanings in the films, quoting obscure academics and offering a different way of looking at the world.

Are any of us following the script?

 

Aren’t we all in some kind of pronoun trouble?

Using Powerpoint and stand-up, Pronoun Trouble combines a fact-adjacent lecture about three extraordinary short films and a whole ton of other topics that sometimes come to mind.

Moor’s previous show, ’Each of Us’, was "A moving satire, rivaling the best of Douglas Adams." (Guardian)


POLITE CLUB - IZZY MANT


Edinburgh preview combining stand-up, storytelling and almost no puppetry…

TV comedy producer Izzy (The Windsors, Peep Show, Harry & Paul) has been pathologically tactful all her life. She’s run away from conflict and crashed headlong into mistaken identity, public disgrace, and the Zimbabwean ambassador. 

But that changes, NOW! Come help Izzy conquer her politeness addiction and reclaim RUDE.

If you’ve ever smiled through a car-crash date, apologised for your boss’s mistakes, or gone to a sex party just out of good manners, join the club.

The first rule of Polite Club is: you do not talk about Polite Club. Unless someone asks you nicely.

‘Izzy Mant is one of life’s great delights’ HARRY ENFIELD.
’Izzy is very funny’ PAUL WHITEHOUSE
