In an improvised Armando, a single word taken from the audience inspires the headline comedian to tell us something about their life. This monologue becomes the basis for three different sketches from our resident improv players The Same Faces. Repeat 8-10 times in a night and you have an unpredictable, but always hilarious evening of improvised comedy.
The Same Faces are one of the midland’s leading improvised comedy groups based here in Leicester. The team features regular members Dave Gotheridge, Hannah Platts, Ki Shah, Mark Vigil, Pippa Hastings and Tom Young, with guest players each month to complete the line up. Our Uncle Armando this month is:–
Chris Norton Walker – Since 2010, Chris Norton Walker has been performing comedy all over the world, including gigs in Europe and The Comedy Store in LA. He has also performed at numerous comedy festivals all over the UK including Edinburgh, Leicester, Hastings and Bath.
ADVISORY: Improvised comedy by it’s very nature is unpredictable and we cannot provide precise warnings. But content of this show is generally lighthearted, with occasional swearing and sexual references.
Veg’An Love Pop-Up Kitchen: Delicious pies and pizza available from 6.00pm onwards. Pre-order with your tickets or pay on the night (Info).
Government advice means we are now closed until further notice. We’re heartbroken for our lovely theatre, our magnificent artists, our loyal audiences & volunteers & all our comrades in the industry. Love to you all. ❤️
