Topping the billing this week is ventriloquist Nina Conti, whose side-splitting ventriloquism and comedy hits the Princess Royal tonight. But it’s not the only thing set to get you off the sofa this week…
Nina Conti-In Your Face
Nina Conti comes with Monkey in tow to perform a hysterical guffaw inducing performance. The Guardian calls it ‘a gem funny, poignant, novel’, while The Scotsman calls it ‘Uproariously hilarious’ and the Mirror brandishes Nina Conti, ‘a genius’. High praise indeed and if her Live at the Apollo performances are to go by, it’s a night at the Princess Royal Theatre that is unmissable!
