As seen on Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow (BBC1) Mock The Week (BBC2) Dave’s One Night Stand and The Wright Stuff (FIVE)
“Achingly funny… A cracking show” – The Melbourne Age
“Brilliantly acerbic…Her force of personality is enough to overpower anyone in the audience still labouring under the delusion that women aren’t funny” – The Guardian
“That goal not a goal’’. Cliff and Degsy are devastated that a dodgy refereeing decision has condemned their beloved team to relegation. Seeking retribution and fair play, our local lads abduct the referee. The ransom? Admitting his mistake and playing the game again. As their half-baked plan goes increasingly awry, they soon realise that the referee they’ve decided to kidnap is even more annoying off the pitch than he is on it. Full time beckons – will the clueless duo get the victory they’d hoped for, or have they scored a spectacular own goal?
Love, passion and friendship get the red card in this very funny look at what could have been – on and off the pitch – for all life’s dreamers. From Robert Farquhar, the writer of Kissing Sid James, comes this high octane, visual treat in an all – new production by Reform Theatre Company, who previously brought you My Favourite Summer, Seconds Out and Like a Virgin.
God’s Official was the winner of the Spirit of the Fringe Award at the Edinburgh Festival.
“You know a true comic playwright has arrived when the audience start laughing before the actors tell the jokes” – The Guardian

‘Boothby Graffoe is a multi-talented, darkly hilarious, grade A British eccentric, who can twist your funny bone one minute, and break your heart the next. A musical comedy act who is more musical than most musicians, and funnier than most comedians.’ – Stewart Lee
‘If I had to compare him to anyone, it would be Spike Milligan.’ – Omid Djalili
