ManMoth Productions


ManMoth Productions is the brainchild of comedy writers Steve Jordan and Patrick Baker. In order to make someone other than themselves laugh, they thought it might be a good idea to let their writing see the light of day. They're still not sure if it was a good idea or not. Only time will tell.

Steve and Patrick met while studying Creative and Media Writing at Middlesex University in 2005, and formed a writing partnership founded on a mutual love of Batman, Doctor Who and Karl Pilkington. They brought ManMoth Productions in to being in late 2009.

ManMoth's first production was A Hero's Journey, a surreal comedy-drama about the constant turmoil and failures of being a writer, written and directed by Steve Jordan and Patrick Baker. The show ran at the Etcetera theatre as a part of the Camden Fringe Festival 2011 to sold out audiences and critical acclaim, described as 'deeply absorbing' and 'an affirmative act of bloody-minded creation' (On the Fringe).

In 2012, ManMoth returned to the Etcetera and the Camden Fringe with Dead Static, a science fiction comedy about two strangers who have an hour to live in space, by Steve Jordan. The show played before sold out audiences and garnered critical acclaim, described as a 'splendidly thoughtful and hilarious production' (Forbidden Planet International) and its brand of comedy likened to Blackadder and Men Behaving Badly (★★★★ - Views from the Gods). The production then enjoyed a week-long run at the Hen & Chickens Theatre in December 2012.

In 2013, ManMoth produced Pilgrim Shadow, a science fiction comedy play and sequel to Dead Static, about two petty criminals on the run and in search of mythical lost treasure. The show enjoyed a week-long Tristan Bates Theatre during the 2013 Camden Fringe, setting a ManMoth ticket sales record. Like its predecessor, the show received acclaim from critics, describing the show as a 'hilarious, unusual Sci-Fi excursion' (★★★★ - Remote Goat).

ManMoth Productions are currently planning brand new productions for 2014.
