The Land of Nod

The Land of Nod


Acclaimed Leeds comedy sketch troupe The Land of Nod return to their home city in March with a brand new sketch show. Their previous show went on a sellout mini tour of York and Ilkley last autumn.

Writer John Butler said: “The new show provides acute, well-observed and satirical social commentary. On the other hand, it stars a talking dog who drinks Guinness.”

Vegan, Latin-speaking football hooligans, a gotcha TV show in a morgue and an honest lucky heather seller ... the show refuses to shy away from the tough subjects.

The troupe’s beloved pantomime cow, Ermintrude, even makes a brief, memorable and heart-rending appearance. She returns as an erotic dancer in the concluding musical piece.

Butler added: “Swearing and profanity are only used when absolutely artistically required. For example, the phrase ‘Donkey porn’ is only used once in the entire show. And we don’t say ‘c**t’ at all. There are a few ‘f**ks’, ‘f***ings’ and ‘f***ers’ though.”

Live musical accompaniment is provided by grade 7 pianist, Simon ‘Fingers’ Henry. Simon Lacy, a specialist in extreme comic Shakespearean acting, and Cate Nisbet - whose 35-year acting career extends back to working with the ginger one out of the Full Monty when they were teenagers - make up the troupe.
