Roleplay Cabaret

The LIVE on-stage roleplaying game.

Roleplay Cabaret is a live choose-your-own-adventure book, where the audience make democratic choices about what happens next.

The show is improvised by Tommy and Ed of Jollyboat, and uses a sophisticated software engine based on story structure and screenwriting theory to structure a narrative. Sadly that all quickly goes out the window when the audience scream for us to kill everything and we end up with a surreal fantasy clustercuss.

Nelly Cootalot

A Monkey Island-like comedy pirate adventure game!

Nelly Cootalot is a point-and-click adventure game, created by award winning comedian and film-maker Alasdair Beckett-King (who happens to be a friend of ours).

Since the creation of Jollyboat was origional inspired by The Secret of Monkey Island (see our biography), the chance to write a comedy song for a pirate adventure game was very exciting. Jollyboat's song appears over the closing credits, and makes jokes about everything that happens in the game.

Convention Tour 2017

Jollyboat are ALWAYS on tour. Or drinking rum and writing songs at home.

We spend most of our year touring comedy clubs and geeky conventions. See our calendar for a list of upcoming gigs.

If you come especially to see us play, please do come and say hello - we're very friendly!
