Description

We live in a divided world and we want to cross that divide. But how can we be popular now 'populist' means 'I'm a shit'? Answer: we love everyone. Oh, except bastards. Everyone hates bastards, right? We agree. Multi-award nominated* musical-activist-comedians, Jonny & The Baptists, are sick of being political and divisive. This show is about how everything is definitely fine. Let's just get along! 'Excellent' **** (Guardian). 'Wickedly funny' **** (Times). 'Lovely' **** (Scotsman). 'Superbly crafted' **** (Metro). 'Disgraceful' *** (Telegraph)... (bastards). *We've lost five times, won no times.

Jonny & the Baptists “are no longer political”. That’s what they say and behind them on the stage, is a huge banner declaring they “Love You”.And just to demonstrate how serious they are about that, they immediately raucously sing, “You’re either against capitalism or in favour of the end of...

Despite Jonny (Donahoe) and his Baptist (Paddy Gervers) being political comedians, they’d like to point out that this show is in no way political.  It’s all above love.  No politics.  Absolutely no politics as we’re all fed up with it.   We live in an increasingly divided world and these two...

Radio HA-HA (5/5 stars) 9 days ago

These two individuals are incredibly talented in their own right; and together, they really do create magic. This satirical musical duo are the strongest comedy musicians I’ve seen so far during the Edinburgh Fringe. There’s no real narrative to the show, instead just songs attached to short back stories. You find yourself almost envious of the chemistry between Jonny and Paddy, as the joy they have performing together is incredibly evident on stage. During the show, you just want to be a part of their little group, maybe even go for post-show pints with this naturally funny pair.
