A Joke

The smash hit stage comedy. Three characters with no memory arrive in a void.

As they try to work out where they are and why, they discover that one of them is English, one Irish, and one a Scotsman...

  • British Theatre Guide

    “Freeman has mastered the joke-drama ratio. We're caught from the outset. We are privy to the best of theatre... This is the Gold Standard. We are honoured and privileged... Chances are, it will be moving into the West End and, if we’re lucky, Broadway... This is a “don’t miss this” if there ever was one.”

  • Edinburgh Reporter

    "Who knew that three men... could cause such hilarity? Razor-sharp, rapid-fire one-liners, exquisite wordplay… a delight… I think this might be my favourite show this year at The Fringe. If it's not then it has certainly set the bar VERY high."

  • Fringe Review

    “... a privilege to witness... masterful... The audience were transported... There are laughs and big laughs and moments of stillness and sadness... hilarity... a truly astounding show... Recommended.”

  • AllEdinburghTheatre.com

    "A beautifully presented piece of theatre... excellent... Freeman's direction is an object lesson in how to present a comedy... Whether you want a thought-provoking hour or some laughs, this is for you."
