John Kearns: Double Take and Fade Away

Venue: South Street (Directions)

Thu 12 Mar, 20:00

Advisory age: 14+



John Kearns returns!

Two Time Edinburgh Comedy Award Winner
Four Time Chortle Award Nominee

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.

Support to be announced.
