WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
With a coffin full of sympathy snacks, Jack Rooke and his 85-year old Nan invite you to their weird and wonderful world of bereavement. Blending comedy, film and storytelling, Rooke's debut hour examines how we treat bereaved people and challenges proposed 2016 welfare cuts for grieving families in Britain. Using humour to break down the awkwardness of discussing death, 'Good Grief' aims to celebrate lost loved ones and finding happiness after tragedy. Jack Rooke is a comedian and storyteller from Watford. Host of the award-winning comedy-poetry night Bang Said The Gun, The Amphitheatre at Bestival and The Guardian Literary Institute at Camp Bestival, Jack blends stand-up and storytelling to explore issues of bereavement, mental health and happiness.
