The entirety of cult sitcom FRIENDS, 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.

Written and performed by Brendan Murphy 
Directed by Hamish MacDougall   

Running time: approximately 70 minutes, no interval

It is with a heavy heart that we say goodbye to much loved actor, activist and fundraiser James Michael Tyler (“Gunther” on Friends) without whom we wouldn’t have a show. In an effort to bravely use the sorrow of his diagnosis to help as many people as possible, he became an advocate and a voice for all impacted by cancer. We have partnered with Prostate Cancer UK to raise money and awareness in James’s memory.

Simply text with the word GUNTHER to 70004 to make a £5 donation to the charity. For more on the charity, visit: https://prostatecanceruk.org/
