Written by and starring Sophia Del Pizzo. Directed by Jimmi Simpson. Featuring Jimmi (7th, 22nd June) and special guest, Ahmed Bharoocha (Adult Swim’s, Dream Corp LLC) on the June 13th show!
ASSMONKEY: In Conversation is a hilariously fast faced and upfront tale of anxiety, crutches and the characters you discover when you’re on road to recovery. The show takes a sideways look at mental health and ways in which we may hit the self destruct button.
ASSMONKEY merges comedy genres through stand up, spoken work, silly songs and character work. Abetted by some “semi” scientific research, you’ll encounter some bizarre renditions of personalities from Sophia’s past, from doctors to yoga teachers. We’ll take you on an uplifting journey from addiction to self help and wellbeing. Expect silliness, wank jokes, bad costumes, flailing and maybe even a little tenderness.
“This woman and this show are both ones to watch. When it’s next on, get yourself a ticket” ★★★★ London Pub Theatres
★★★★ “Del Pizzo is in equal parts stand-up comedian, motivational speaker, singer/songwriter, impressionist, character actor, video editor and more. And all of these elements have a part to play in this rainbow-carousel of a show”. London Theatre1
“A glorious, farcical conglomerate of jokes, videos, songs and yoga”“An articulate and exciting new voice”
