This show will be a marriage of material from the show I wrote for 2020 festivals and new material developed over this year. I will be previewing it as much as possible both online and (hopefully) in person at festivals, online shows and my own online WIPs as well as Covid safe venues I can personally organise with. I believe the show will be all the stronger for the extended development period and I have been working on it with my director for a long time already. I have had a great with Laughing Horse at previous Brighton Fringes and I'd love to come back again. UK Pun Champion 2020....
