Spectator cartoon: Masked humour

I drew this months ago but coincidentally it appears in print (in the current Spectator magazine) in the same week that I saw a film screened live in a cinema for the first time.

The joke is a dig at your typical noisy mulitplex customer, but they're unlikely to be seen at a play so in fact it was very enjoyable (it's just the old cartoonist cynicism at work again). We saw the National Theatre Live screening of The Audience, with Helen Mirren. Of course, it'll never match the experience of the real thing, but if you can't make it/afford it, it's the next best thing. Sadly, during the performance we saw she did not berate any gay drummers.

Here's another "theatre masks" cartoon from a couple of years ago.
