Ahab; or What If Moby Dick Were Stand-Up Comedy
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Moby Dick: a book, a play, an episode of Star Trek, 12 movies, and a fish. Now, its been adapted into a stand-up comedy show by niche idiot Jonny Gillam. He wondered: 'if we can adapt books into plays. Can we adapt them into stand-up? I dont know. Still, if anyones going to fail at this, Id like it to be me.' The result is a show that is entirely Moby Dick and entirely stand-up. Expect hubristic rants, musings on the minutiae of technical objects and Dick jokes.
