'LAST LAUGH – Northern Premiere – John Godber film'

//

 
Fri 19th January– 8.00pm
 

WHEN YOUR LIFE’S A JOKE IT’S TIME TO STAND UP! The story follows a college lecturer, Martin Dawson played by Nick Figgis and his hope to escape from obscurity by having a screenplay made into a film.

 

We see his relationship with his ex-wife and children, his mistress and film agent along with his sometimes overbearing parents. We witness his eventual breakdown during a cathartic rant on an open mic spot at a local comedy club in front of a packed house.

During the performance, we see flash backs to a memorable trip to Whitby with all the pathos and comic talent you could expect from Godber as our hero endures an insane weekend with his parents. This film is a universal story that resonates with most people illustrating the sometimes confusing and conflicted nature of love of all kinds.
