This season, Johnny takes on foes and allies, old and new, in the next adventures of the undead private detective to be recorded Live in the Rotten Flesh. And not just at any venue. Season 2 will be recorded in the Leicester Square Theatre, home of some of London’s finest comedy podcasts, stand-up performances and plays.

You can come and see Dead Drunk Detective: Live in the Rotten Flesh at the Leicester Square Theatre on Friday 8th September and Thursday 28th September.
