Upstairs Comedy and The Same Faces present...

Uncle Armando (June 2017)

Finished run

AGES: 14+
TICKETS: £8
GENRE:

The Same Faces are one of the midlands leading improvised comedy groups, and are based here in Leicester. The team features regular members Tom Young, Allan Smith, and Dave Gotheridge, with a vast roster of guest players from which to complete each show’s line up.

In an Armando, a single word – taken from the audience – inspires a monologist to tell us something about their life, based on that suggestion. This monologue, in turn, becomes the basis for three different scenes from the improv players. A single word can produce three different worlds in a matter of minutes!

Using the Armando structure, each month we’ll have a comedian, storyteller, poet, or person of interest along to tell stories from their lives, to inspire our players to create brilliant, entirely improvised scenes, before your very eyes!

Our Auntie Mandy this month is Diane Spencer delights audiences worldwide with her cheeky, dark and often edgy stand-up comedy.  A dazzling performer, Diane captivates the crowd with her charming demeanour, cutting wit and skilfully crafted material.

Between her theatrical facial expressions, on-point character roles and enthralling story-telling ability, Spencer mesmerises the crowd.

Personable, hilarious and ballsy
Broadway Baby

Her wacky and irreverent storytelling will charm, shock and uplift you. Not for the fainthearted, but also not to be missed.
