A joyful return to stand-up for this cult idiot. William is wholeheartedly embracing the Willy he always was, telling remarkable stories with a beguiling blend of daft creativity and ingenuity. Yes, he was in Alan Partridge, for like a tiny bit. Yes, he had a spot on Him and Her. Yes, he was in the second series of Broadchurch (the one that didn't make sense), but no, for the last time, he wasn't in Horrible Histories (he was in the other one). 'All hail the comedians you could never clone' (Times).
Rob Oldham, Amused Moose Breakthrough Comic 2017 and tour support for John Kearns and Abandoman considers politics, youth, and death. He does jokes to ensure this is funny. Worm’s Lament is an hour of stand-up, poetry, reflective nostalgia and ambient anxiety drawing on Rob’s ‘Quirky, offbeat sensibilities that distil into smart jokes that rarely sound like anyone else’s’ (Chortle). To put it enthusiastically, ‘You have not lived until you have heard one of Rob Oldham’s tonal prose poems.’ (Ed Fest Mag). Don’t miss this debut show from an exciting, thoughtful young comic. Directed by Liam Williams.
