Berk’s Nest in association with Dawn Sedgwick Management are delighted to announce that critically acclaimed, Edinburgh Comedy Award nominated duo Max & Ivan have added a Bath date to their UK tour of hit show Commitment. This is the duo’s first fully autobiographical show, directed by triple Edinburgh Comedy Award Nominee Kieran Hodgson, and comes in the wake of rave reviews at the Edinburgh Fringe and a sold out run at the Soho Theatre.
Commitment is the true story of how Max, as Ivan’s Best Man, attempted to reunite Ivan’s teenage band (Voodoo 7:2, the premier ‘art rock post-punk funk’ group in mid-noughties Liverpool), for one final gig. It’s a show about dreaming big, growing up, and trying – but ultimately very much failing – to make it in the band.
Max and Ivan said previously: “This is our favourite show yet! It’s all about our rea-life friendship – one we intend to test to its very limits, via a series of gruelling drives and ill-advised service-station dinners as we traverse the UK.”
Max & Ivan created, wrote and starred in BBC Radio 4 sitcom The Casebook of Max & Ivan, which has attracted guest stars including Matt Lucas, June Whitfield, Reece Shearsmith and Jessica Hynes. They also created a Comedy Blap for Channel 4 based on their hit live show The Reunion, and appear in BBC Two’s acclaimed comedy W1A as Ben and Jerry. Other individual credits include Blandings, Drifters and Peep Show (Max) and The Mimic, Drunk Histories and Bleak House Guest (Ivan). Along with Graham Dickson they co-founded The Free Association, London’s premier improv school.
Tickets for Max & Ivan’s ‘Commitment’ show at Komedia, on 22nd January, are available from www.komedia.co.uk or by calling the Box Office on 01225 489070
