Tom Crowley's Mass
Tom Crowley & Len Blanco
Sunday 16 June
Comedian, performer and non-accredited celebrant Tom Crowley takes the format of the most popular one-hour show of all time and cynically repurposes it for his own frivolous comic ends. He’ll perform all the hits - hymns, readings, the intercessions, and more - as you’ve never seen them before!
Tom Crowley is a writer, actor and comedian best known for playing Aston Lange in The Royals (E!), writing and performing (as Eric Chapman) in the Prix Europa-nominated podcast sitcom Wooden Overcoats, and as the playwright behind the stage adaptation of the Rocky Horror sequel, Shock Treatment (King’s Head, 2015). With his company Crowley & Co., Tom has hosted variety shows and written and directed a host of award-winning plays. For BBC Radio Comedy, he has been heard in The Beef and Dairy Network, The Brig Society and The Lentil Sorters. With the comedy group Sad Faces, Tom wrote and performed in six acclaimed shows at the Edinburgh Fringe as well as the group’s own BBC Radio 4Extra show, Four Sad Faces.
VAULT Festival Outstanding Contribution Award Winner, 2017.
Len Blanco: Firing Blancs
Len Blanco is the modern man of your dreams: Woke. Feminist. Vegan (Monday to Thursday). He just wants to talk to you. For God’s sake let him talk to you. In his musical comedy cabaret, this recovering boy band member and drag king amongst men will be exclusively revealing just how far he’s come since the 90s (spoiler: not very far). Blanco’s larger-than-life debut solo show will deliver live vocals, live lip-sync, and live choreo.
VAULT Festival After Dark Nominee, Man Up Finalist. As seen on BBCOne's All Together Now.
