Rob Lloyd’s Who, Me is an unabashed nerd fest celebrating not only the good Doctor, but sci-fi, fantasy and nerd life in its hilarious, embarrassing entirety.
This one-man show features enough of your favourite trademarked characters to make a copyright lawyer’s head spin, with a good sprinkling of classic stand-up thrown in for those in the audience that don’t speak fluent geek.
The show puts Lloyd’s obsession with Doctor Who on trial, and takes place inside his head, complete with photos of his former nerdy self (not that different to his current self it has to be said). He also takes the role of Attenborough-style narrator and smarmy prosecutor.
You don’t have to be a Doctor Who fan to appreciate the comedy in Who, Me, although it is infinitely funnier if you go with a ‘Whovian’ (the name given to Doctor Who enthusiasts) - they'll be able to explain some of the more hardcore Who references.
At first you may feel a little awkward watching Who, Me. It’s a bit like diving into a teenage geek’s stream of consciousness and trying to swim. If you can keep afloat you’ll be rewarded with some top-notch audience participation and slide shows that put your dad to shame.
We recommend watching at least one episode of Doctor Who before attending.
