English Comedy in Madrid with Hush Comedy
Looking for the best English comedy in Madrid?
Let’s get our laugh on…
(Full disclosure: I’m the kind of guy who laughs any time the word “wood” is uttered in my presence. Not exactly high brow, I guess.)
But I recently had the opportunity to see “Maybe it’s You”, a show produced by Canadian expat Tricia Audette.
And a good time was had by all.
I first met Tricia a few years ago, and hadn’t had the chance to see any of her comedy till now.
But it was well worth the wait.
English comedy in Madrid – “Maybe it’s You”
Like I said, the show I saw is called Maybe it’s You, and it’s written by Tricia Audette and Jonathan Burrello.
The show consists of Tricia and an English actor called Adrian Randle in a variety of bizarre romantic and sexual situations – an 8 year old’s crush on his babysitter, an ugly man whose blind wife is miraculously cured, the unexpected romance between an alien and the object of his anal probing.
Between scenes, a hairy English cupid played by MadImprov’s Steve Loader (pink tutu and all) does a bit of “scripted improv” and gets the audience talking about love, lust and relationships.
I found the whole thing to be well-written and well-performed, and was happily surprised at the experience.
The next show is April 20th 2018 and future shows will be announced on the Facebook page Hush Comedy.
You can also follow the comedy troupe on Instagram.

P.S. Do you have a favorite place to watch English comedy here in Madrid? Or Spanish comedy if you prefer… Let me know here in the comments.
P.P.S. I guess I should clarify that when I say English comedy I mean comedy that uses the English language, not the fact that the comedians come from England. Although two thirds of them do. So whatever. Ain’t language funny? Check out expat, immigrant and guiri for more about that whole thing. And, as always, have fun!
