Funny Business

By Derek Benfield

Starring Alan Committie and Robert Fridjhon

First you laughed at BOEING-BOEING, then you loved PERFECT WEDDING and now the same comedy team
returns to entertain you in the hilarious farce FUNNY BUSINESS!


When Ferris agrees to look after his sister’s seedy hotel in the country, he doesn’t anticipate the arrival of a notorious journalist who writes a critical column in a Sunday newspaper.

Or that this will coincide with a visit to the hotel of an assortment of guests whose guilty secrets they don’t wish to have divulged.

As a result, Ferris is caught up in a dizzy round of lies and subterfuge as he tries to protect the hotel’s reputation in the eyes of the visiting journalist – a task made more difficult by
the fact that he doesn’t know which of his guests is the journalist!

FUNNY BUSINESS promises it all – fast paced, wildly silly antics, wickedly inventive business and, most importantly, lots of huge laughs. And that’s just standing in the foyer waiting for the show to start!!
