Is There Anybody Out There?

Thursday 3 October at 8pm

Tickets - £23

In fact, its said the rst word he spoke was Uranus. In this, his brand-new show, he seamlessly combines the very best showbiz entertainment youll currently nd, in the world, possibly? as he wrestles with some of the big questions that other all-round entertainers shy away from. Such as:

 

Are we alone in the universe?

Is there life on Mars bars?

2lbs of potatoes.

Packet of ginger nuts.

Dont lose this shopping list.

 

 

Do not miss this not to be missed type of thing! If I wasnt in the show Id denitely be in the audience watching myself intently. Laughing and learning in equal measure. Thoroughly happy to pay the admission fee and denitely not asking for a refund. Also not rustling sweet wrappers and ddling with my sodding telephone with a gormless expression on my face. See you there!.

Arthur
