Tickets for Chasing Bono in London’s Soho Theatre are expected to sell out quickly so grab them while you can!

This new comedy based on Neil McCormick’s ‘I Was Bono’s Doppelganger’ is written by comedy duo Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais the brains behind such television smash hits as Porridge and The Likely Lads.

It’s Dublin in the 1970s, Neil McCormick and Paul Hewson are friends with the same dream- to start bands and become megastars. Paul became Bono and his band U2, well, you know. Neil’s band never quite got off the ground. Fast forward to 1987- Neil’s become a writer but he’s not happy about it. He’s thinking of ending it all. Meanwhile, Danny Machin, a Dublin gangster, is determined to see a fair account of his life written up. He kidnaps Neil who becomes Danny’s reluctant biographer. He didn’t quite expect to become Neil’s therapist though.

Chasing Bono tickets are now available for the limited run at London’s Soho Theatre.

Brilliant, hilariously moving performance in a very atmospheric venue. Bought it for my husband who said it was one of the best show he's been to

Elizabeth Harrison 19th January

Funniest night out I e had in years.

Philip Smith19th January

A fantastic story, well-written, humorous, about the real-life gap between ambition and reality. Some of the acting let down the script on one or two occasions, i.e. forgotten lines?

Unusual subject matter told cleverly in an amusing way. Very good performances by the lead actors and inventive use of the small stage area

Amazing story. Very funny and extremely well acted. Great theatre with very intimate set. We were on the front row and our feet were on the stage.
