"The title says it all really, and so it should. It's quite long. You. Me. Swedish flat-pack furniture."
Join Kieran Bullock (Elwood Social Club, Big Hoo-Haa) for a quite frankly baffling evening of home renovation masquerading as entertainment. Stories, jokes, and other nonsense all set against the background of a man building a piece of furniture on stage. Will Kieran beat the clock? Or will the bookcase* end up held together primarily through gaffer tape and determination?
*(won't be a bookcase every night)
We've all been through the humiliation of trying to build flat-pack furniture. Now you can come and watch someone else go through the punishment! What's the Swedish word for schadenfreude?!
The idea was born from an improvised stand-up routine where Kieran, unhappy with his prepared material decided instead to put together an Ikea toilet seat (yes they make toilet seats, and yes they are needlessly complicated to put together). The toilet proved quite the nemesis, ending up with the majority of the pieces strewn across the stage to the delight of the crowd. Thus a stupid concept was born.
Grab your allen keys, and let's get ready to rumble!
