More details

Life as a stand-up comedian is all about the routines. And not all of them happen on stage. Witness a new and immersive fusion of stand-up comedy and improvised theatre, that allows you to see the full picture. It's stand-up. Seen from both sides of the curtain.

If you've ever watched the 'extras' on a stand-up DVD, then you clearly want more than what's on-stage. What do comedians talk about backstage? What goes on after they perform? What do they really think about their audience? Routines is the live show that gives you those answers by showing you the performers on-stage, backstage and everywhere in between.

Featuring Dana Alexander, Stephen Carlin, Will Mars and Matt Roper. Produced by Will Mars (Producer of award winning format show and BBC2 pilot, Joke Thieves). Directed by Michael Eriera (Scotsman Fringe First Award Winner).
