Paul Richards presents A Christmas Show that will (possibly) break your heart

December 3, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm


One very Christmassy man. Lots of stories. Far too many costume changes.

Storytelling comedian Paul Richards (“immediately endearing.” – Heckler magazine), gets a bit excited about Christmas and he’s quite keen to share this with you.

Intentionally the most sickeningly festive show you’ll ever see, this
heartwarming Christmas story of all things Yuletide is Paul’s most ambitious, excitable, prop-heavy show to date: expect drumming elves, Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer on an exercise bike and of course the legend himself, Father Christmas, who has a confession to make. Okay, quite a few confessions…

Part stand-up, part musical comedy, part theatre, frankly quite exhausting. It’ll all make sense by the end. 90 minutes of festive treats from a 35-year-old man in a onesie who really should have grown out of this by now.
