Brendan Murphy’s Worldwide Comedy Award Winner

One man, seventy minutes, ten seasons. The entire 236 episodes of the hit 90s TV show, FRIENDS, retold through the eyes of Gunther, Central Perk’s very own ‘seventh Friend’.

Settle down in Gunther’s café to hear the true insider story of what happened to Ross, Rachel, Phoebe, Chandler, Monica and Joey from the FRIENDS character who kept them caffeinated through all the highs, lows, love affairs and failed auditions along the way! 

This award-winning show was created by acclaimed comic actor Brendan Murphy who also created and performs the multi-award-winning Buffy Revamped and is co-creator of ARIA award-nominated satirical podcast NonCensored with Rosie Holt.

FRIEND will be performed by Joseph Maudsley, who has recently performed all over the world with the Olivier award nominated show Potted Potter, including in Las Vegas, where the show won Best New Show in The Best of Las Vegas Awards. He debuted in the show at Edinburgh fringe in 2023 receiving critical acclaim and delighting audiences.

Both a commentary and a greatest hits... For a reduced Shakespeare style telling of the Friends saga, this can’t be beaten
