Live show ”Bussmann’s Holiday”, recorded at the Tabernacle in Notting Hill, London. Performed and written by comedy writer Jane Bussmann ( Smack the pony, The Fast Show, South Park) a one women show adapted from her book the Worst Date Ever.
Listen, laugh and cry. This is a true story like no other.
The show tells the unlikely story of how Jane grew so fed up with interviewing celebrities in Hollywood that she went to Uganda to investigate someone she Googled as ‘the most evil man in the world’, Lord’s Resistance Army leader Joseph Kony, wanted on charges of rape, murder and the kidnapping of ‘somewhere between’ 20-64,000 children.
Jane says this is a lie. Jane went to Uganda to impress John Prendergast, a very attractive American peace activist. When she arrived Jane was forced to actually investigate Kony. The resulting show shone new light on an appalling war crime. Bussmann’s Holiday became the book The Worst Date Ever or How it Took a Comedy Writer to Expose Africa’s Secret War.

I recorded Jane’s show at the Tabernacle, days before her performance in the houses of parliament (a premiere for a comedy writer to perform a show within its walls) organised by Labour MP of Wakefield Mary Creigh.
