Bookshop Midnight Mayhem (Phil Kay / Miss Behave / Bob Slayer / Pay What You Want)

By | Published on Wednesday 14 August 2013

Never has a show been more aptly named than ‘Bookshop Midnight Mayhem’. In the front room of a small book-less bookshop, utter chaos reigns during the wee hours of the morning at this brilliant off-the-cuff show. Barefoot compère Bob Slayer hosts an evening of debauchery, hilarity, and general absurdity with the help of a few comedic friends. With little forward planning, ‘Bookshop Midnight Mayhem’ has a very organic feeling to it, as comedy, stories, and music come from all corners of the room over the course of the side-splitting evening. This show is everything that a late night comedy show should be; odd, crude, and inappropriate. So grab a pint, strap yourself in, and prepare for mayhem.

Heroes @ Bob’s Bookshop, until 26 Aug, 11.59pm.
