December 2011, The Cockpit Theatre, Marylebone

Director Dominic Kelly

An improvised comedy show in the form of the Christmas special of a failing celebrity chat show: Celebrity Salon. The guests crowding on to the studio sofa included a dark-souled fashion designer, a neurotic-erotic novelist and the nation’s favourite out-of-rehab soap star, as well as the show’s two bickering presenters, a long-suffering floor manager and an endearing but hopeless warm-up comedian. Music by the Karaoke Criminals. the salon’s first production at its new base, the Cockpit Theatre in Marylebone.
