The Humorist (15)

5 DogpoleShrewsburySY1 1EN

Old Market Hall



Boris, a middle-aged comedian steps out in front of a crowd, performing his winning routine to adoring fans, and most importantly for a Jew in the Soviet Russia of 1984, the approval of the authorities. But Boris is sick of it. Once a serious writer with a published novel, he performs the routine, time after time. Boris decides it's time to work up some edgier material, and chooses the worst setting imaginable for its first airing.
