Jerry Sadowitz
Comedian, Magician, Psychopath

Friday 25 April, 8.00pm
Jerry is best known as an offensive comedian but he is also one of the world’s most skilled and creative card magicians. In this show you'll get to see some amazing sleight of hand and some original magic projected on a large screen which means you automatically get a front row seat without having to actually sit near him! Not for the easily offended, but a fantastic show of slick card tricks,slight of hand and hard hitting humour which comes at you like a runaway train. Please note that this show is not suitable for anyone with less than £22.50.

This Olivier Award winning play celebrates the extraordinary life of Britain's best loved comic, from his beginnings as a child-performer to the glitz and glamour of international stardom. Starring the multi-talented Bob Golding as the great man, this is a moving, often hilarious tale about an affectionate lad with funny bones; a born entertainer; the tall one with glasses; the man what brought us the sunshine. What do you think of it so far?

A firm favourite with his legendary performances, Omid has won a whole host of stand-up awards, as well as acting awards for his role in The Infidel, and is one of the funniest comedians around.

"to carve yourself out a career as the thinking person's Iranian comedian in this political climate takes a fine brain and a masterful way with the audience. There is no question that Omid Djalili possesses both" The Sunday Times
