Matthew Highton: The Horror

  • The Venue 42 South Street Wells, Somerset, BA5 1SL (map)

Tickets £7

Oh, the Horror. Come spend an hour creating dread and laughter as horror maestro Matthew Highton invites you to try and survive the hour. An improvised show in which, with your help, a unique horror story is hilariously crafted and improvised. Anything can and will happen and it’ll never be seen again.

If you’ve been to Wells Comedy Festival before you’ll have seen Matthew heading up the Comedians Cinema Club’s improvised renditions of Hot Fuzz and know that he’s in his element on the fly and making up films. If you haven’t, here are some nice things people have said:
