Nick Helm: One Man Mega Myth
Comedian and inspirationalist Nick Helm has overcome pain and suffering his entire life to become the greatest living example of not giving up the world has ever known. This year he returns with a show so monumental it will change your DNA forever. Nick Helm will entertain you until it kills him. The burden is his. The pleasure is yours. ***** (Telegraph). ‘A dazzling hour’ **** (Evening Standard). ‘Invigorating, unpredictable and unreliable’ **** (Times). ‘A high-octane, brilliantly silly hour’ **** (Time Out). ‘It ain’t pretty but it is hilarious’ **** (Chortle.co.uk).
Abandoman: Moonrock Boombox
After several years cutting a truly original path between rap music and comedy, Abandoman are stepping up their award-winning game. Now performing as a full band, they’ll innovate mixtape mashups and futuristic jams live on stage, using the history of hip-hop as their blueprint, and you as their inspiration. From Kanye to Jay Z, from country to funk, this show will contain musical, lyrical and comical scenes of a seriously awesome nature. Are you ready to take the trip? **** ‘Flight of the Conchords meets 8 Mile’ (Chortle.co.uk). ‘Truly innovative’ (Guardian).
