Amy Lamé's Unhappy Birthday party - May 2012 London residency on sale now
Like a lot of people, no doubt, Amy Lamé secretly hopes that her idol Morrissey will turn up to her birthday party. He's been invited after all.
Unhappy Birthday is the tale of the American-born comedian and writer's 'ultimate birthday party', which is awaiting its guest of honour, with a table set, styled and soundtracked in his honour. There's even a vegetarian buffet and all sorts of Moz theme-ry.
In nearly two decades in the limelight, Amy Lamé has built a reputation for insightful, thought-provoking comedy, much of it centred around her proud self-image, and exploring fat and body fascism as well as lesbian and gay issues. The new show will not disappoint Ms Lamé's many fans, exploring as it does issues around the cult of celebrity and obsessive pop fandom, victimhood, and the litigation culture. Interactive, multimedia, bittersweet and as sharp as a Morrissey lyric, it's all we've come to expect from the former Mayoress of Camden (really).
Amy Lamé's Unhappy Birthday is at the Camden People's Theatre from Tuesday 1st until Saturday 12th May (no performances Sunday and Monday).
We have tickets available now, priced £10 for shows Tuesday to Thursday, and £12 for Friday and Saturday night performances.
A new show from a top performer on her own patch, Unhappy Birthday is expected to sell out, so hurry up if you don't want miss the party.
