The Angry Boater live on Historic Narrowboat ‘Widgeon’ – this Tuesday (Feb 13th) in London.



The show this Tues, Feb 13th, originally scheduled for Kings Cross, has been moved to historic narrowboat ‘Widgeon’ – a unique & cozy floating theatre. It will be a slightly longer version  of the show than the other London dates and includes a short interval.

‘Widgeon’ will be moored on The Regents Canal outside Proud East in Haggerston, London, N1 5ET. Access to the towpath is via Kingsland Road, 7 mins walk from Haggerston Overground.

There is a bar on board and arrangements have been made with a nearby bar (2 mins walk) for toilet facilities.

DIRECTIONS: Turn right out of Haggerston station and left onto Kingsland Rd. The canal is just ahead. Cross Kingsland Rd and head down the ramp to the towpath. Go straight, always keeping the canal on your left. Walk over the hump backed bridge and Widgeon will be one of the first boats to your left (outside Proud East). The bar will be open from 6.30 pm. Showtime is 7.30 pm.



Following an encounter with some quirky boat people in Hemel Hempstead, Joel Sanders bought a narrowboat and lived with them in Apsley Marina. Frozen water pipes, exploding toilet tanks and £600 monthly parking spaces – this was absolutely how things were supposed to be.

Yet again, his infatuation had overwhelmed him. It was irresponsible, spontaneous and, against the odds, it made him happy….. for a while.

The trouble with cutting out old stresses is that new ones soon come along.

Following a court appearance testifying against some locals who had been terrorising the marina, Joel fell out of love with it. He headed for London.

A thrilling adventure … for a while.

Conflicts with other boaters & local residents, archaic laws, overcrowding, the 7 deadly questions of boating, crime-sprees, lock-rage, pump-outs, wind chimes and Russell Brand.

‘The Angry Boater’ is a glorious 60 minute adventure full of twists, turns & big laughs from a comedian who spent a decade working across the USA, appearing on shows with the likes of Robin Williams & Chris Rock …. followed by another decade in the UK, floating around on a canal boat.

Top notch entertainment for boat-lovers, boat-haters & anyone who loves a great story.

“Loaded with absurd anecdotes ….. the wait for his punchlines is always worth it.” – Jewish Renaissance 

This is the original, boatilicious show about what it’s really like to abandon the land for life on the water.
