Occult cabaret-horror stand-up show but none of the booked acts have shown up! Therefore, it falls on our host, the spectral Tom Short (2019 Chortle Student Comedian runner-up, 2019 Leicester Square New Comedian finalist) to tell scary stories, fortune tell and channel spirits to make his way to the end of the show. Imagine the Rocky Horror Picture Show crossed with Basil Fawlty. Exploring themes of the occult and horror in many facets of life, such as politics, the cost of living and celebrity.
