The Cow That Almost Missed Christmas

The Cow That Almost Missed Christmas is a one-off animation giving a unique interpretation of the nativity story seen through the eyes of a cow called Marjorie. Marjorie is voiced by Isy Suttie, with Johnny Vegas providing the voice for a chicken called Brian.

The-Cow-that-almost-missedMarjorie the cow lives in a run-down stable in the middle of Bethlehem. Nothing exciting ever happens in Bethlehem until now… there’s a census or something and there’s going to be some sort of street party – that’s what Marje has heard, anyway!

She heads into town in search of this party. Joined by a spangly leotard-wearing chicken called Brian they stop passers by but no-one seems to know where the party’s happening: not the herd of sheep who have been frogmarched into town by their shepherds who told them a new king was about to be born; not the donkey who just wants a rest after lugging his boss’s pregnant wife into town only to discover that they haven’t booked a hotel; and certainly not the camels who are being chased by Pontius Pilate’s horse guard looking for three star-gazing, wise astronomer blokes the camels have carried all the way from the eastern deserts.

Marje and Brian are fed up, lost and disappointed not to have found the party. But then Brian catches sight of the bright star the camels mentioned they were following. As they head onto the main street and into a very familiar square, they find the entire town quietly engrossed in a beautiful scene: the donkey, his carpenter boss and his wife, the three camels with their wise kings and a tiny new born baby with a little halo, quietly huddled into Marje and Brian’s family stable.

And the day ends with a cow and a chicken slightly stunned at the chosen venue – delighted they didn’t miss the party after all, but with the realization that the best place to be at Christmas is home.

The Cow That Almost Missed Christmas is a Baby Cow Animation/Komedia Entertainment production for CBeebies. Voice talent include Isy Suttie, Johnny Vegas, Miriam Margolyes, Nitin Ganatra, Simon Greenall and Daniel Laurence Taylor.

“Pete is a legend of the lounges at Langtree park. Hilarious comedian and good friend of mine who has me and the rest of the lads in stitches after every match…not literally. A must see Act with a vast rugby knowledge.” Jon Wilkin

Celia Pacquola is Adam Hills with ovaries, using her magnetic charisma to draw audiences in to a warmly uplifting show that’s as inspiring as it is hilarious. I’d defy anyone not to leave… just a little more in love with life – and with her – than before.”

Luke has a unique observational style, and speaks about his life with tourettes syndrome. Starred in C4’s ‘The Undateables’.

“I Was A Teenage Santa” Little Crackers, Sky One

Dressing up as santa claus isn’t on the to-do list of many teenage boys, but it’s the fate that befalls a 13-year-old Johnny Vegas.

When his dad drops out of fulfilling Father christmas duties at the church fayre, Johnny is forced to don the suit. The embarrassed youngster points out that St Nick is supposed to be fat and jolly and it’s pointed back that he’s halfway there. As the kids queue up, Johnny’s seasonal spirit is somewhat lacking, more ho-hum than ho ho ho. if mr vegas had the chance to do things differently, would he?

Johnny Vegas And Another Thing…

Johnny Vegas And Another Thing…

Manchester International Festival 2011
11 – 17 July 2011 Pavilion Theatre

Johnny Vegas returns to Manchester International Festival with a new theatre show in the Festival’s own performance space, the Pavilion Theatre on Albert Square.

Following the success of his darkly original show Interiors, the feel bad hit of MIF07, Johnny Vegas will make theatrical history this summer in a hugely ambitious show entitled And Another Thing…

Kevin Eldon Exploring the world of the home shopping TV channel, Vegas, Kevin Eldon and Emma Fryer play three members of a shopping channel team with very different attitudes, aims and aspirations. As we watch them at work behind and literally live in front of the cameras we catch a glimpse of their private and very public lives.

In a unique experiment the show is presented in ‘Theatrivision’, as Vegas and MIF team up with shopping channel Ideal World. Each performance, Vegas and his cast will be beamed live into the homes of Ideal World’s TV audience as actual shopping channel presenters selling products – live.

Audiences in the theatre will get to see both sides of these characters – their off air and their live personas. Audiences at home, watching the shopping channel, get the unexpected and entertaining experience of having Vegas and Fryer selling to them while Eldon multi-tasks as his on stage character as well as Ideal World’s ‘floor manager’.
