‘A deliciously funny show about mental health and looking after the people you care about’
★★★★ Fest

Fresh from his debut BBC Three series Happy Man and Total Theatre nominated Good Grief on BBC Radio 4, Jack Rooke presents Happy Hour – a comedy documentary theatre show set in the filthiest student, gay, wanky-exposed-brick- with-dangly-lightbulb bars, exploring why some mates leave the party and never ever come back.

Jack started with the Soho Theatre Young Company and since then his plaudits include being featured in New York Times’ highlights of Edinburgh Fringe 2015.

Commissioned by Soho Theatre and co-commissioned by HOME, Manchester.

Underbelly, Belly Button

Running Time: Approx 60mins
