John Kearns: Double Take and Fade Away

Date: Friday, Oct 18 2019
Time: 8:00am
Venue: The Wardrobe Theatre

Chuckle Busters presents an evening with one of the country’s most popular comedians.

Two Time Edinburgh Comedy Award Winner and Four Time Chortle Award Nominee John Kearns returns!

Still a slave to dairy, the Gregorian calendar and Greenwich Mean Time, he is flesh and blood after all. A funny man, not for everyone of course, but remember this mustn’t be mistaken as an invite rather a heads up.

Based on the theory that the most interesting places on maps are the empty spaces, John has booked a tour, stopping by at some places that look like people share hot water bottles with their landlords. The show implores you to learn lessons from your ceiling and realise Fred Astaire actually knew very well what he was doing. Directed by Olivier winner, Jon Brittain.

“He has forged comedy gold.” ★★★★★ Chortle

“A supreme stand up – richly idiosynchratic comedy.” ★★★★ The Guardian

“A distant, absurdist cousin of Tony Hancock… one of the oddest and most original comic performers on the Fringe.” ★★★★ The Telegraph
