It’s 1953. Senator McCarthy is raising hell about ‘reds’ in show biz, and there’s “a wait list to get on the blacklist”.
But on the 23rd floor of New York’s Rockefeller Plaza, the team behind The Max Prince Show is determined to keep the good times rolling. One-liners fly and zingers ricochet off the walls as Max Prince and his writers hold out against the suits who think the show’s too long – and far too smart!

Written by Neil Simon (one of the most Oscar and Tony Award-nominated writers of all time), and based on his time as one of Sid Caesar’s comedy writers, the non-stop gags keep on rolling in this clever comedy about clever comedians.

Starring the impossibly funny Peter Rowsthorn (Kath & Kim, Thank God You’re Here), this is a laugh-out-loud comedy with punch lines that pack a wallop.

“Pulverisingly funny.” The Wall Street Journal

“I get to go into a rehearsal room with some of the funniest people I know, and laugh at their outrageous portrayals of some of the funniest writers in the history of American comedy. You get to go the theatre to see a side-splitting comedy set against a stylish 50s backdrop that could be inspired by Mad Men. To quote a New York producer, “What’s not to like?” Come join our madcap fun!” Kate Cherry
