Recently nominated for Best Show at Dave’s Leicester Comedy Awards 2014, Jonny and The Baptists present a raucous hour of songs and silliness. The Stop UKIP tour offers a satirical take on UKIP policies ahead of 2014’s European Elections, taking on Nigel Farage’s ‘fruitcakes, loonies and closet racists’.

NOTES 

 

Jonny & the Baptists: The Stop UKIP tour is a musical comedy show centred on the European Elections in May 2014. Jonny & the Baptists aim to engage and amuse audiences with a range of topics, as they have done to national acclaim for several years. The show offers a satirical take on UKIP policies, while encouraging people towards voter engagement rather than apathy, whatever their views. One of the best things about the UK’s creative industries is the breadth of ideas available to audiences at theatres, cinemas and galleries every day, and the show hopes to further encourage that conversation.
