You can catch Ronna and Beverly’s live show in London at The Soho Theatre from 13th December – 9th January 2011. Buy your tickets here! http://www.sohotheatre.com/pl1968.html
The characters Ronna and Beverly are two fifty-something Jewish mothers (created and played by thirty-something US comedians Jamie Denbo and Jessica Chaffin) who host the hilarious and raucous self-titled live chat show Ronna & Beverly. Based around the format of a self-help chat show, they interview celebrity guests live on stage, give pushy advice and hawk their self-help book for divorcees You’ll Do A Little Better Next Time. In December 2009 the show was picked up for a comedy pilot which aired on the US SHOWTIME network.
While being an established and well loved live act in LA at The Upright Citizen’s Brigade Theatre for many years now, Ronna and Beverly are now turning their sights to the UK. Fresh from a hugely successful Edinburgh run, America’s favourite Jewish mothers are about to take over The Soho Theatre from 13th December to 9th January. Past guests on the show include Matthew Perry, Russel Brand, Chris O’Dowd, Simon Lucas and more…You never know who’ll turn up!

Ronna and Beverly Live at The Soho Theatre, December 2010 – Jan 2011:

‘Much of the attraction comes from the brilliant character comedy of the two co-hosts, whose bickering, bullying and awful attempts at marriage guidance are raucously funny.’ – The Guardian
