Tasty, tasty comedy
Death By Pie was founded in 2014 because Nathan Smith loves pie and comedy (in that order). We specialise in theatrical comedy. What does that mean you ask? Well it means we recreate popular genres on a ridiculously low budget through inventive slapstick and musical parodies. Our 'ethos' is simple - make you laugh until you soil yourself. Deep, I know. There could be a political or social issue floating around but we brought you here to laugh - so that's just a bonus.
Our first production 'Health Under Fire' premiered in summer 2015 where it performed at both the Manchester & Edinburgh Fringe Festivals. Our Second Show, 'The House on Hallowed Ground' (2016) saw sell-out performances and established Death By Pie as the 13th best fringe, comedy spoof company in Manchester (a statistic which I just made up).
In July 2018, Death By Pie was awarded with 'The Most Innovative Use of Space' Award at the Greater Manchester Fringe for their Wild West spoof Westernized! that was set in a Pop-Up Saloon.
Here's a video of Nathan & Hannah talking to Debbie Manley about Westernized!
