They say all political careers end in tears. In Brandreth's case it's tears of laughter as the actor, author, ex-MP, One Show reporter and QI, Have I Got News for You and Countdown star returns with his new show celebrating all things theatrical. Without hesitation or repetition (and just a touch of deviation), Just a Minute regular Gyles delivers a dazzling hour of wit, wisdom, high drama, low comedy and hilarious name-dropping. He's a Fringe award winner with a record of five-star Edinburgh sell-outs, so book early. 'Master raconteur' ***** (Telegraph). 'Absolute joy' ***** (Scotsman).
