That, as they say, is that. For now. Our new comedy sketch show Global Mega Incorporated was a fantastic success and a huge amount of fun. Thank you so much to everyone who came to our show last week at the Etcetera Theatre - a sell out run!
Congratulations to our hard working cast - Cliff Chapman (Jeremiah), Emma Stirling (Percy), Adam Joselyn (Edwin), Ellen Gallagher (Hyacinth) and Steve Jordan (Thomas). The show was directed and written by Steve Jordan, with sketch contributions by cast members Ellen Gallagher and Adam Joselyn, plus Graeme Hurry, writer and editor of KZINE. Thank you to our technician and operator Tom Bexon, and to all the staff at the Etcetera Theatre - still the best place in London to debut new comedy.
Reviews from our three night debut at the Etcetera Theatre, April 2015.
★★★★ - 'Jordan's writing is carefully thought out, with the characters growing on you the more you spend time with them, so he does indeed manage to tick the truly funny box... The cast and creatives behind Global Mega Inc are perhaps better known on the fringe circuit for humorous sci-fi plays rather than sketch comedy, but this does seem like a natural sidestep, and one which they make with confidence and high-energy. You can tell they're all having a lot of a fun together in this show, and it seeps out into the performance. Whether you've been the wage slave at the bottom of the corporate pyramid or the evil manager at the top, Global Mega Inc is a relatable parody of big business which promises a good time.' - Shona Barker, Views from the Gods.
★★★★ '... absurdist humour that would have done the Monty Python team proud... not only was it funny, it was thought-provoking, while still putting across different points of view... on the strength of their latest material, Bad Bat have acquired a new found confidence and ‘maturity’ (if that’s the right word to use for comedy!) in their work as they broaden their material and write not only gags, but have something to say about today’s world.' - Michael Davis, Female Arts.
Bad Bat will now look ahead to this year's Camden Fringe festival in August when we'll be debuting a brand new comedy play by Steve Jordan at the Tristan Bates Theatre. More details soon!
