The Waking Dead
From the author of the hit show Tim Finnegan’s Wake comes an outrageous new interactive Irish comedy. The Waking Dead is a portable, interactive dinner show we bring to you. It can be performed at a banquet center, in a hotel dining room, a restaurant, or even a private residence – anywhere in North America. You arrange the venue, invite all your friends, and we bring the music, the comedy and the Irish zombies!
The show is filled with tender ballads, rowdy reels, hilarious eulogies and zombies. Audience members are treated like friends and family of the dead and encouraged to get up and say a few words (just tell any old joke you know and insert the zombie’s name). Of course, some audience members may choose to show upo in their best zombie attire. And some audience members may “turn” during the show. If we’re not careful everyone could be a zombie by the end of the night. In fact, a couple more Irish whiskeys and I’ll be a zombie! Slainte!
HOW IT WORKS: The Waking Dead is designed to be performed during a meal. It starts the moment your guests enter and ends about one hour after dinner. It includes a musician or band (depending on the size of your group and your budget), a comedian and a cast of zany Irish characters (including zombies). It also comes with a makeup artist who will transform the ones who are “turned” into the waking dead. Any audience members who wish to come already “turned” are most welcome.
DURATION: The length of a meal plus an hour (approximately 3 hours)
SPACE REQUIREMENTS: A private dining area and a second room for the makeup artist.
GROUP SIZE: 50 – 250
