Tuesday 25th September 2018 @ Aces And Eights Bar
Doors 8:00 PM - £3.00 Come and see us even if we can’t quite see you! Cheeky Blinders returns with a chardiee comedy special, with all funds going to the Royal Society for Blind Children. All hosted by Douglas Walker and Tom Skelton (‘crafted by the gods of comedy’ – Three Weeks), the UK’s only blind double act (as far as we know, but we haven’t checked).
The first half will see…
And then in the second half, it’s your last ever chance to see Tom Skelton’s Edinburgh smash, Blind Eye Spy! A month after the Fringe, will he remember all the words? Yes, just not necessarily in the right order.
TOM SKELTON: BLIND EYE SPY
2023. Post-Brexit, MI6’s budget has been slashed, but they need a new agent in Berlin. Out of work comedian Tom Skelton has ‘seasoned abilities as an improviser’ (Chortle) and making things up as he goes along, speaks ‘ein Bisschen Deutsch’, and is registered blind – and who would suspect a blind spy? A Le-Carre-On character comedy thriller unfolds as Tom wanders blindly into Berlin’s dark underbelly of espionage, betrayal and currywurst. ‘Deliciously talented’ (The Guardian). ‘A wonderful narrator’ (Times). ‘Inventive and very enjoyable’ ★★★★ (Mirror). ‘An extremely clever one-man show that cries out for a bigger stage’ ★★★★ (EdFestMag).
Only £5! And ALL proceeds go to the Royal Socirty for Blind Children.
