This month, the improv troupe Spontaneous Wrecks are bringing a ‘Friendly’ show to the Bridge Hotel in Newcastle. Be prepared to be laugh yourself silly, jump into some crazy storylines and some epic sayings. If you haven’t guess it already, The Wreckes are going all FRIENDS themed for their show on the 7th and we coudn’t BE more excited. I caught up with troupe member Jon Farthing to find out more!

Hey guys, so for March you are going to do a show themed on the television show F.R.I.E.N.D.S – tell us all about it?

It’s an idea we’ve been mulling over for a while now. Since the show’s recently been added to Netflix, we’ve been watching all over again and it seemed like a good time!

If you had to choose which member of the group represents a certain F.R.I.E.N.D.S character who would they be and why? Now we know you are mainly guys so we won’t mind if you have to repeat a character?

We have tried to decide this amongst ourselves – the only thing we could agree on is nobody wants to be Ross!

Will there be any improv games relating to F.R.I.E.N.D.S and if so what ones?

There definitely will be a few. To reveal would be telling! We’re keeping them as secret as Chandler in a box.

Will you have your own version of the F.R.I.E.N.D.S Trivia game? If so will there be a forfeit for the loser? Like in the show they lose the apartment?

This one has been a popular request… we’ll see what we can do 🙂

What F.R.I.E.N.D.S famous scene would you love to incorporate into an improv scene?

Saying the wrong name at a wedding would be an amazing scene-starter – anything can happen from there…

in three words, why should people come to your show at The Bridge?

We’ll be there
