Kunt and the Gang
Sat 22 October 2016, 20:00 – 23:30 BST
Something unusual and a little different at The Sheaf'
Probably one of the most offensive but hilarious shows to date.
With support from,
Jez North believes himself to be a pop sensation and so has the inflated ego and crippling depression that stardom brings however is missing a lot of the talent. After 13 years most people would have given up but Jez North just hasn’t got the hint.
Providing harsh chart pop covers with unwilling audience participation Jez North will astound and amaze, taking you on a conga-line journey from the highs of Taylor Swift to the lows of self-loathing. To bare witness to this spectacle you will need a strong stomach, ample resolve and no moral compass.
Called “The funniest thing at the Edinburgh Fringe” by both Stewart Lee and 2015 Fosters Comedy Award winner Sam Simmons, and endorsed by TV comedy heavyweights Richard Herring and Charlie Brooker, musical comedy treasure K*** and the Gang bring their unique beyond-the-knuckle show to Banbury on 22nd of October at Wheatsheaf Banbury.
If you haven’t heard of K*** and the Gang, then you have probably accidentally had Google Safe Search turned ‘on’. Over the last 13 years the ‘one man filth machine’ (Bizarre Mag) has assembled a back catalogue to rival any of his musical peers including over 10 albums of obscenely catchy songs, 30-odd music videos and an acclaimed original musical chronicling the fake kidnapping of Yorkshire schoolgirl Shannon Matthews.
In this time K*** and the Gang has also played sold out shows as far afield as London, Edinburgh, Adelaide, Melbourne and, er, Southend-On-Sea, amassed over 3 million YouTube hits, scored two of the least appropriately titled top 75 UK hit singles of all time, been ostracised by much of the comedy community at the Edinburgh Fringe over a misjudged advertising campaign involving crudely shaped stickers, and masterminded the world’s first ever virtual dirty protest, egging on his online followers to tweet jpegs of their daily motions to sinister entertainment bigwig Simon Cowell.
Billing himself as “The second best thing about the internet”, K*** and the Gang will never get aired on mainstream TV or Radio and is destined to remain an underground comedy guilty pleasure, but will continue to remain loved by his army of internet wrong’uns, and hated by others - a proper Marmite music hall maverick.
This show is obviously not for the easily offended but there are people among your readership who this show will appeal to so please help us publicise this gig of a truly one-of-a-kind comedy talent, and feel free to use as much censorship of the name as required – suggestions:
“K*** and the Gang”, “K and the Gang” or “whose name is too rude to print in a family newspaper but whose details can be found at your peril at www.katg.co.uk”
”Life-affirmingly puerile stuff, set to one of the most infectious melodies imaginable.”
”[At Edinburgh Fringe] the show I laughed at most was Kunt and the Gang.”
“A one man filth machine!”
”A true festival original.”
