James Seabright Presents

FRIEND (The One with Gunther)One man, 10 seasons, one hour!

The entire 236 episodes of the hit 90s TV show, F.R.I.E.N.D.S, as told through the eyes of the one person who knows it inside out… Gunther.

This new show from acclaimed comic actor Brendan Murphy reimagines the TV classic through the eyes of barista Gunther, who will welcome audiences to the premiere London dates of FRIEND (The One With Gunther) following its hit Edinburgh Fringe debut.

Settle down in Gunther’s café to hear the true insider story of what happened to Ross, Rachel, Phoebe, Chandler, Monica and Joey, from the Friends character who kept them caffeinated through all of the highs, lows, love affairs and failed auditions along the way!

Brendan Murphy’s recent credits include the Las Vegas season of Olivier Award nominated global hit Potted Potter, Best of Edinburgh award-winning comedy parody The Crown Dual and improv comedy classic Battleacts.
