Eric and Little Ern
This affectionate, moving and fantastically funny
homage to the greatest comedy double act that
Britain has ever seen vividly brings back warm
memories of a bygone era. Recreating some of the
finest moments of Eric and Ernie’s television and
stage performances, cherished moments from the
archives sit alongside new material created by the
performers. Together they make a brilliant comedy
that recreates the all-ages appeal of Morecambe
and Wise in their heyday.

Shappi Khorsandi
After being knocked up like a 1950’s teenager
Shappi missed 2013, but now she is back and it’s forward march. Reflecting on the good things, she celebrates her haphazard, zigzag towards her dreams. She’s feisty, flirty and effortlessly funny, handling every subject with a razor sharp wit, softened only by her deliciously dizzy delivery and endless charm.
