[JUN 99] BELRADE THEATRE PRESS RELEASE
The Nerd
Starring Joe Pasquale

7 - 12 JUNE 1999

Following in the footsteps of Rowan Atkinson, who starred in the original West End production, Joe Pasquale takes on the lead role in the critically acclaimed comedy play The Nerd written by American playwright Larry Shue and directed by Andrew O'Connor.

It was an enormous hit for Rowan Atkinson in the mid-eighties and Joe Pasquale is excited at being given the chance to appear in such a funny play of which Time Out wrote

"….wonderful one-liners, splendid cameo roles ... this is a rib-shatteringly funny evening".

The Nerd
VICTORIA GAY AS 'TANSY', JOE PASQUALE AS 'RICK' AND ANDREW WHIPP AS 'WILLUM'

A Nerd is a mixture of twit, wimp, wally and creep. Staid Willum is having a birthday party. Rick, the Nerd, arrives in full Hallowe'en dress - four days late - and within minutes manages to insult, sicken and bore the guests. Willum endures this because Rick saved his life - and discovers that Rick is not what he seems and his reappearance stuns us all.

Joe Pasquale is currently one of the top 'live' comedians, filling theatres throughout Great Britain. He has starred in three Royal Variety Performances over the past five years. He has made dozens of television appearances including his own 'specials'. Autumn '98 saw his third successive video on sale and he has already earned a Platinum Retail Performance Award for sales in excess of 1,000,000 from The British Video Association.

Regular theatregoers as well as Joe’s fans will delight in seeing him in this outrageously funny play.
