a christmas tail weirdos panto 2014

What the Weirdos comedy collective's third annual alternative Christmas panto will involve, we just don't know. But we can pretty much guarantee it'll be stupidly fun, and it's all in aid of Great Ormond Street Hospital.

The troupe's pantos are fast becoming a Christmas comedy tradition. The first two – a reinterpretation of the Disney classic 'Hook' and a strange story about Colonel Sanders – were wonderfully chaotic, and brought together a huge cast of bizarro comics.

2014's 'A Christmas Tail' will be no different, with a cast including (probably) Harriet Kemsley, Joz Norris, Katia Kvinge, Luke McQueen, Pat Cahill, Beth Vyse, Lindsay Sharman, Laurence Owen, Marny Godden, William Lee, Thomas Meek, Joe Davies, Mark Stephenson, Gareth Morinan, Liberty Hodes, Penny Matthews, Mark Dean Quinn, Phil Jarvis, Alwin Solanky, Charlie Miller, Chris Boyd, Michael Brunström, Mario D'Agostino and 2014 Foster's Edinburgh Comedy Award winner John Kearns.

Weirdos boss Adam Larter has penned the play, with Matthew Highton taking on the director duties. That's all the info we have for now. We can't wait.

Can't say I'm one for Christmas but last years panto changed my life, I see my kids more regularly as I direct result which was strange for "new Dad" but great for my doctor. If I can get someone to feed my fish I'll be on the sleeper train from Glasgow, for definite.


There were no penguins in last year's show. Although I did enjoy it and will go again this year. Hopefully there will be penguins.


Having previously gone to the Weirdos Comedy Club nights I would like to understand what is all of this understanding about. A lovely bunch of people and I can't recommend the fish enough.
