Never miss another 'Sean Hughes' show
Penguins: Sean Hughes
Sean Hughes in the award winning Penguins
"At his funniest and most profound" ***** The Sunday Herald August 2013
Sean Hughes is back on tour following a critically acclaimed and audience packed run of his new show 'Penguins' at The Edinburgh Fringe. Sean was awarded the Herald Angels Award for Best Comedy Show.
This is a show so full of surprises, and hidden twists and recurring themes that you find yourself mapping it out hours later. Sean takes us back to his Dublin upbringing and the, at times, utter awkwardness of teenage life. Weaving in his family, his school days and the business of friendship and tying it all in to the present. It's brilliant and multi- layered - and it really is up there with his Perrier award winning show A One Night Stand.
Why does society tell us how to behave and react? What does it have to do with Penguins? Buy a ticket and all will be revealed.
Comedian and writer from Dublin who was the youngest winner of the Perrier Award. He has appeared on many TV shows, including the Channel 4 drama, The Last Detective, and perhaps most notably as a former team captain on the BBC2 comedy music quiz, Never Mind The Buzzcocks. He has written several novels, two collections of poetry and many short stories. He lives in London with a cat, a dog, loud music, and a smoker's cough.
'For quick laughs look elsewhere, but for something that leaves more of an impression. Hughes is your man' (Chortle)
'At his funniest and most profound' (The Sunday Herald)
'Hughes swiftly and seamlessly alternates between pathos and gags' (The List).
