Spencer Jones is Making Friends at the Soho Theatre


Spencer Jones is Making Friends at the Soho Theatre

Spencer Jones, star of Mr Winner and The Mind of Herbert Clunkerdunk will be bringing his show “Making Friends” to Soho Theatre…

After lockdown, Spencer Jones moved with his young family from London to Devon – nearer to the beach, closer to his Mum, and more chilled than the city. Was it an easy move? No. But was it the right choice? Also no.

Double Edinburgh Comedy Award and double BAFTA-nominated professional idiot, Spencer Jones, is back with a very silly story about the wrong kind of quiet, how to tell if you’ve become a lonely monster, and a vicious, vicious feud… with a chicken.

Making Friends, Spencer’s new show, delves into his move and its reverberations and explores what happens when we lose our connection to our social support. He takes us on a trip through the humour/agony of the neighbourly relationship, his worries about being a decent Dad, and how not to scare off potential new Devon-based mates like an overeager teenager on a first date.

The show mixes Spencer’s trademark surrealism and absurdity with his most personal and relatable storytelling yet. Alongside his thoughtful meditations on isolation, family, and mental health, there will be songs about eggs and aggressive chickens, feet (that speak), and the story of a man slowly crumbling.

Spencer is the star of Mr Winner (BBC One) and The Mind of Herbert Clunkerdunk (BBC Two), the creator of Deep Fake Neighbours (ITV), and can be seen in Ted Lasso, Upstart Crow, and Live at the Apollo (BBC).

Making Friends, Soho Theatre, Dean Street, London, Wed 10 – Sat 20 Apr, 7.30pm
