Ready to inject some comedy into your holiday season? Look no further than the British comedy duo James & Jamesy as they return to the island on their Vancouver Island Tour December 19-20, this time with O Christmas Tea. This show promises something for everyone of all ages, but let’s dive in a little bit more shall we?
When asked about the show, Jamesy (played by Alastair Knowles) described it as an opportunity for audience members to get into the holiday spirit by sending them on an immersive adventure. The premise behind O Christmas Tea is as such: catastrophe strikes James (played by Aaron Malkin) and Jamesy’s Christmas tea party, flooding the world with tea. Reacting to this unseen event, the pair of friends find innovative and hilarious solutions to keep themselves afloat. The performance will take both James and Jamesy and the audience through a journey of immersive theatre, as everyone gets swept out to sea in an aquatic escapade that promises to be fun and full of action.
James & Jamesy are well-known for their mastery of physical comedy and have been on tour across North America since 2012. Their highly acclaimed original works High Tea, 2 for Tea, and most recent In The Dark have enjoyed more than 400 performances in total. The two are recipients of many awards including Most Outstanding Show (London), Best Comedy (Victoria) and Beset Script (Montreal).
While on their Vancouver Island Tour, James & Jamesy will be leading a public workshop for adults on physical comedy. This workshop will be presented through Kate Rubin Theatre in Victoria.
Please make sure to grab your tickets early! James & Jamesy is a great opportunity for the entire family to enjoy some live theatre and seating at the McPherson Theatre fills up fast! O Christmas Tea will also be performed in Maple Ridge December 22 and 23 at the ACT Arts Centre!
