Guy Kelly’s Letter of Last Resort

Terrifying comedy about mental health and narrowly avoiding nuclear war.

Making the least commercially viable decision in his ridiculous life, Guy Kelly has decided to make a show all about struggling with mental health, masculinity, and the staggering accidents and near-misses that have brought the world close to global nuclear war. If that sounds to you like a hard place to find jokes, you’re absolutely right. Regardless, Guy will use his skills as a storyteller – as well as accompanying music and projections – to take you on a journey of sympathetic doctors, conspiracy theorist plumbers, and one man whose clear thinking quietly saved the world.

Guy is best known for his work with the critically-acclaimed sketch storytellers The Beta Males
