An eccentric drag king comedy brought to you by the clowns of The Barry, Brian & Bean Company.
Set in the 1980s, and with a soundtrack full of hits, COCKROACH explores how pity, loneliness and downright delusion thrives under the weight of the rat race. Through a series of sketches, lip syncs and awkward audience encounters, follow Barry, Brian and Bean on their journey towards *something* better, *something* more, *something* to make it all worthwhile. Be prepared for sexual tension, fiery 80’s karaoke & the occasional emu.
The Barry, Brian & Bean Company debuted at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2018 with Improvised Therapy, which had a sold-out run and was nominated for a BWW 'Best New Comedy Award'. They then toured London in venues such as Theatre503 and The Greenwich Theatre, before touring internationally in 2019 with sold out performances at the Toronto Fringe Festival. After a hiatus due to the pandemic, they're back with COCKROACH, their brand new eccentric drag king comedy, where you'll find out that life isn't the only thing that's hard.
