Having triumphed on Britain's Got Talent[, Jon combines comedy, music and drama in a brand-new show exploring the true story of his television success while secretly fighting for his life. Accompany him backstage as he wrestles jokes and jeopardy to survive not only the competition but also to just... survive. Doctors and nurses, judges and jokers all become players in Jon's musical journey through jubilation, heartache, tumours and television. Reminding you that laughter can be the best medicine, but so can immunotherapy. As seen on Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway. 'Wonderful' (Simon Cowell).

"My workshop is my second happiest place after the stage. Although I must remember to wear gloves. I've had too many injuries and I kind of need my fingers."

Jon Courtenay interview

It's a one-man comedy musical about cancer, that rhymes. I started writing it the day after my last treatment, it was free therapy. I didn't intend it to rhyme but that's how it came out. Very weird.
