Description

Showbiz stalwart and Wheezing Dragon Best Newcomer (1980, 1982), Whobblers returns for one last debut show. Using staggeringly unrealistic 3D-holographic technology, this macabre cash-grab features stories about childhood, rubbing shoulders with the greats and his notorious death in 2008.

'Made me cry with laughter... my favourite comedy show on the Fringe this year' ***** (TheFountain.eu). 'Slick... Original, intelligent humour' **** (ThreeWeeks).
