One of the Edinburgh Fringe's most celebrated talents of recent times sets out on his first full national tour.
John-Luke Roberts' show this year was a complete sell-out run and one of the most talked about shows of the festival: a dizzying avant-garde ride through the mind of a gifted comic-philosopher. One with a blue moustache. Who thinks far more about the Spice Girls than anyone should. A masterclass in prop, clown, costume and Mel C-themed comedy.
And that's all we can tell you in the brochure, because his stupid title takes up the rest of the allotted space.
Suitable for ages 16+ years.

'A hit' ★★★★ The Times
'Killer gags... glorious idiocy' ★★★★ The Guardian
'Mind warping hour which follows through brilliantly on its own absurd logic...relentlessly funny' ★★★★ The List
They say all political careers end in tears.
