The list of performers also includes Will Adamsdale, Danny Brown, Adam Buxton, Nick Frost, Miles Jupp, Funmbi Otomayo, John-Luke Roberts, Sunil Patel, Arthur Smith, Mark Thomas, Thom Tuck, Phil Wang and Liam Williams.

Performers for Manwatching at the Royal Court

Written by an anonymous woman and performed by an unprepared man, Manwatching is directed by Royal Court Associate Director Lucy Morrison, with Lighting Design by Jamie Spirito. Like each comedian, audiences will also be unprepared, only finding out who is performing on the night itself.

Manwatching runs from 10 – 20 May 2017 in the Jerwood Theatre Upstairs.

Commenting on the project, the anonymous female writer states: “Even though many women desire men, the most basic elements of that desire seemed oddly unexplored. So I thought, who better to give the words of a woman desiring men to, than the voice of a man, as it’s so much more comfortable and familiar for us to hear about desire through the male perspective?”

You can book your tickets through the Royal Court’s website.
