Tales of Whatever Presents Jonny Pelham: Off Limits

at Shakespeares, Sheffield

Please note: Info provided by the Event Organiser

We are delighted to present one of the very best shows from Edinburgh 2019.

Jonny Pelham - Off Limits
Jonny has something to say that’s usually off-limits for dating, family gatherings, hanging out with mates and most social situations really… So what better place to talk about it than in a comedy show with a bunch of strangers? Off Limits is a personal, provocative and hilarious hour that should not be missed.
