Guitar playing comedians and multi award-nominated stars of Radio 4’s The Now Show, Jonny Donahoe and Paddy Gervers are bringing their fun-filled new show to Hepscott Parish Hall for an evening of infectious songs, satire and silliness.

Last year, Jonny accidentally told his four-year-old niece climate change would end the world. To stop her crying, he and Paddy promised to fix it.

The End is Nigh is a musical comedy show about family, friendship, and environmental disaster. It promises all the hallmarks of their success from barnstorming satirical rock to flights of brilliant silliness. It also offers a more personal and thematic tone, telling a full-length story through song, sketch and stand-up.

Their clever, catchy and smile inducing songs mine their material from climate change as well as more irreverent ditties about the likes of weeing in the shower, ugly babies and library closures.

Singer songwriters, Jonny and Paddy hit the headlines last year when their Youtube clip ‘Jonny and the Baptists V Ukip’ went viral. Familiar to the UK circuit and Radio 4’s The Now Show, the pair have rapidly won acclaim for their unique blend of riotous rock ‘n’ roll, satirical soul and anthemic absurdity.

The event takes place on Saturday from 8pm. Tickets are £10 including food, contact 01670 514031.
