NEXTUP PRESENTS: POPE’S ADDICTION CLINIC // LIVE RECORDING - POSTPONED
A show where comedians and audience members bear the fruit of confession. The worst, the most abject parts of our lives turned into stories that are hilarious but also poignant, poetic and heartbreaking. Comedy WITH catharsis - and a more enlightened understanding of addiction.
Host for the evening, Pope Lonergan is committed to brutally full-disclosure about prescription opioids, elderly care, wound-dipping and co-dependant relationships. And he’s brought along 3 acts who have no qualms about being as candid onstage as he is. Featuring; Helen Duff, Ben Target, & Esther Manito

“Pope is a very funny and deeply unwell young man” - Russell Brand
