Oyster Eyes are doing it again and this time they're really doing it. Breakthrough stars of Where Did All the Dogs Go?, The Chicken Gang and Daddies Chocolates! bring you their really good new show.
Hot on their own heels, Oyster Eyes want to show you some cool jokes and a medley of sweet sketches, all in the world famous fashionable style. Come on down, take off your shoes, wash your hands and enjoy some rice for God's sake.
The show is a plate full of weird faces, surreal sketches and polo necks. Oyster Eyes would like to take you back to the days of the old woman who swallowed a fly and kick you forward to a time when Tina Turner has to impersonate herself just to get work. These are hard times and Oyster Eyes want you to sit back, relax and escape into a world much better than yours.
Oyster Eyes are a collective of four writer / director / performers; Natasia Demetriou, Phillip Dunning, Phoebe Walsh and Liam Stewart who left their families and centrally heated homes to try to create things that will make people laugh. Think Birds of a Feather, 2.4 Children and Goodnight Sweetheart, then forget about them... Forever.
Phoebe won 2009's Method Lab commission for new theatre from Manchester's Greenroom for her comedy/live art piece Alone Time. Well done her. Liam is the cofounder and regular compere at That Time of the Month Comedy Club in Newport Pagnell where he has shared a stage with many of Edinburgh's favourite comics. Tash and Phill enjoy a meal out and a good television programme.
In 2011 Oyster Eyes developed a 'Channel 4 Blaps' proposal with Seb Barwell and Angel Eye Media. They have continued to work closely with Seb who is now a development producer for Roughcut TV and have put forward another proposal for Channel 4's 2012 round of Blaps submissions. Phill, Tash and Phoebe have also been writing for Roughcut TV's head of online producer, Jon Petrie, Anna Crilly and Katy Wix for their upcoming new Channel 4 series, The Anna and Katy Show.
