Three quarters of MPs are millionaires. A third of the country lives below the poverty line. Whatever your politics, Jonny & the Baptists think it’s worth talking about.

Fresh from a smash hit Edinburgh Fringe premiere, Eat The Poor is a riotously funny musical comedy about inequality, revolution, friendship and betrayal. Join acclaimed musical comedians Jonny & the Baptists – stars of Radio 4’s The Now Show and BBC Live at Television Centre – for an epic tale of modern Britain.

Setting out to explore the gap between rich and poor, Jonny & the Baptists’ lives turn upside down when Jonny betrays Paddy for financial gain. As Jonny enjoys the highlife with Andrew Lloyd Webber and Jerry Hall, Paddy falls into homelessness and despair.
