A black comedy .
Jackpot or Crackpot? You decide.

Put down that remote control, forget about those post Christmas sales and come on down for a laugh a minute romp, see the cranks, crackpots, loonies and conspiracy nuts …. Or find out the truth.

Allen turned 21 on the 11th of September 2001. Nobody came to his 21st. Abandoned and dejected, he spiralled into depression, he became absorbed with the events of 911. Corporate power, The mass media, the war on terror, the Oklahoma city bombing, Pearl harbour, The Reichstag, the Phoenicians, the reptilians, the royals. Suddenly it all made sense.

This will be the world premier of James and Cheryl Amos’ (aka the half baked co-op) hilarious one man show. “We wanted to make a show that is funny, and confronting, at once, the comedy hooks you in, then, whammo! We hit you hard with the facts!” says James, with a cheeky grin and a nervous twitch “In researching the show, we think James may have gone a little crazy” Laughs Cheryl, “but we haven’t had to have him committed, yet.” This is a must see for people who want to understand the fundamentals of how, and why our society is structured as it is, or who just want a good laugh.

“I don’t know about you but I’m concerned with what’s happening in this world,
I’m concerned with the structures,
I’m concerned with the systems of control,
Those that control my life and those that seek to control it even more!”
- Alex Jones
