Ben van der Velde - Fablemaker
Ben van der Velde
Ben van der Velde returns to HCC with his one man show.
An improvised comedy adventure with this "master of audience interaction" (Huffington Post) as he raids the library of his fantastical imagination to create thrillers, romances, ghost stories and more original freewheeling tales that have never been told before and never will be again. Fresh from the Edinburgh Fringe, having woven tales of artisanal meth dealers from Shropshire trying to assassinate their Mexican rivals, child-kidnapping psychologists, hotly pursued by three fairy godmothers and a pair of track and field-loving priests and thrillers involving the KGB, Austrian eco-terrorists and Slobodan Milosevic's accountant. If you like Ross Noble, then you'll adore Ben's unique approach to comedy,
"Wonderfully improvised riffs showcasing his impressive spontaneity and sharp tongue." Edinburgh Festivals Magazine
"An accomplished comic." Time Out
"On flights of fancy, he pushes ideas to extremes and displays a crackling, spontaneous energy in which we're swept up."
hosted and compered by Graeme Coulam.
