Steve Pemberton stars in Dead Funny.
Steve Pemberton stars as Brian in Terry Johnson’s 21st anniversary production of Dead Funny.
Eleanor wants a baby. Her husband would oblige but he’s too busy running the Dead Funny Society. When comedy heroes Frankie Howerd and Benny Hill die in the same week the Dead Funny Society gathers for a celebration of laughter and hilarity. But Eleanor’s grin, hides a grimace. When your marriage is deader than either Morcambe or Wise it’s hard to see the funny side of things.
