Troy Hawke - Tiles of the Unexpected
Please note: Info provided by the Event Organiser
We think Troy Hawke deserves a bigger stage….so we’re giving him one!
After a sell-out show at The Court House in Dudley earlier this year garnered rave reviews, we’ve moved quickly to secure everyone’s favourite 1930s throwback comedic investigator for the first official date of his 2020 tour.
Troy Hawke is an erudite home schooled 1930's throwback...the Errol Flynn of the high street.
Educated, sophisticated, but utterly clueless. He tackles modern issues head on in his uniquely untimely manner.
Following a sellout run in 2018 in which he exposed Bingo as the deadliest sport in the country, the empty marxist promise of Poundland’s false advertising and Aldi being responsible for Princess Diana, 1930’s throwback comedic investigator Troy Hawke returns, applying his scrabble mentalism to Kanye West, xenophobia and the ugly truth of Ikea’s link to the CIA

Troy is a matinee idol born in the wrong era. Homeschooled by his elderly mother for the most part of his life, he has recently emerged blinking into a modern day dystopian present with the naivety of a newborn fawn. 'Undeniably funny' (Chortle.co.uk). 'Intelligent and effective satire ... a character of real comic integrity' **** (BroadwayBaby.com).
