My Pain Is Better Than Your Pain

0 no. saves icon · Contemporary

A time-hopping ‘traumedy’ of stand-up, storytelling and psychotherapy.

Overview

Problems solved, he found himself confronted by a deep sense of unease. Some think it’s depression, others think it’s youth.

Jonnie is 55. Twice divorced, he presents a fiercely popular daytime TV quiz with a deified cyborg Alexander Armstrong (who may or may not make an appearance). Still, he finds himself confronted by a deep sense of unease. His estranged daughter thinks it’s depression, others think it’s old age.

In a unique solo debut, Award-Winning Writer/Performer Jonnie Bayfield goes on a blisteringly honest journey to the centre of his own psyche. An experiment-in- thought fusing stand-up, storytelling, real-life recordings of psychotherapy sessions, and his own proposed ‘future self’.

Bayfield muses modern pain & past trauma, awards, success and our quick fix culture.
Jonnie is the youngest ever recipient of the prestigious Sky Academy Arts Scholarship, for ‘My Pain’ and his debut Novel ‘Pleasureland’, he has appeared on BBC One, BBC Three, Radio 4 and Sky Arts.
