Comedy (stand-up, adaptation)

Moby Dick: a book, a play, an episode of Star Trek, 12 movies, and a fish. Now, it’s been adapted into a stand-up comedy show by niche idiot Jonny Gillam. He wondered: 'if we can adapt books into plays. Can we adapt them into stand-up? I don’t know. Still, if anyone’s going to fail at this, I’d like it to be me.' The result is a show that is entirely Moby Dick and entirely stand-up. Expect hubristic rants, musings on the minutiae of technical objects and Dick jokes.
