Karl Theobald: Essentially – The Book Tour (Work-in-Progress)

  • White Hart 19-21 Sadler Street Wells, Somerset, BA5 2RR (map)

Tickets £8

Having been out of the ring for nine years, concentrating on TV, film, radio, theatre and his band (Grifter Kid and the Midnight Raiders) Karl Theobald – (‘Green Wing’, ‘Plebs’, ‘GameFace’) is back in his element, making his long awaited return to the live comedy arena.

A stripped-back, one-man, stand-up comedy show. A ‘book tour’ about a book that has failed to be written. In an age of the self-discovery, self-realising, self-journeying, ‘Selfie Helpy’ book, how does a man who is essentially funny write a serious philosophical book about serious philosophical matters?

Incorporating satirical irony, silly anecdotes, character comedy and a general daftness, the show is a pretence of shambolic, improvised wrong stepping.

Age guidance: 14+
