First up is the hilarious and talented-beyond-belief comedy rapper Chris Turner with his new show What a Time to Be Alive. Post-Brexit and pre-Trump, Chris moved to America. Comedy is all about timing. Award-winning comedian and ‘virtuoso’ freestyle rapper (Guardian) brings his ‘truly masterful gags, crafted with intellectual panache’ (Chortle.co.uk) back across the Atlantic for a fourth solo show. ‘The thinking man’s comedian… mines for laughs in esoteric places, consistently digs up comedy gold’ **** (West Australian). ‘The best show I’ve reviewed in seven years’ **** (List). **** (Herald). **** (Skinny).
Following Chris is comedy hypnotist Ben Dali with: Take A Trance On Me. After amazing audiences for years with the groundbreaking Strictly Come Trancing, Edinburgh Fringe’s first and best hypnotist returns previewing a brand new hypnotic experience. Take A Trance On Me invites audience volunteers to be hypnotised live on stage before re-enacting a range of hilarious hypnotic sketches inspired by the madcap world of London. From street performance in Covent Garden to customs at Gatwick Airport, visits to the haunted London Dungeons and our very own unforgettable London’s Got Talent, Take A Trance On Me is a game-changing show where the audience is the star.
PLUS Special Guest Performance from Simon Day. The Fast Show star revives four much-loved characters. Billy Bleach: the pub bore. Geoffrey Allerton: confirmed bachelor and unpublished Yorkshire poet. Tony Beckton: one of Britain’s most dangerous men. Brian Pern: prog rocker and humanitarian.
