By Drew Colby (of Eastbourne) 

 

Expect rabbits doing what rabbits do, famous extra-terrestrials from the silver screen and many more endearing and astonishing characters all made with just a light, two hands and a screen, before a show-stopping shadow duet rounds off this virtuoso performance. Stand-up comedy meets cabaret meets visual shadow feast! Expect a gallery of notorious politicians and tributes to wellloved filmsColby leads the audience on a hilarious and highly skilled journey from the age of the caveman to the present day, via the magic of the silver screen, TV cartoons and (in)famous politicians.
