John Kearns: Varnishing DaysFri 10 Nov
The Varnishing Days is the heart-stopping, glasses-dropping, hard-rocking, wig-shaking, levothyroxine-taking, knee-knocking, boot-licking, justifying, teeth rattling, digressing new show from stand up comedian to the stars John Kearns.
“Kearns could be your new King of Comedy” – Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard.
“the best showcase for his greatness yet… Kearns is as original and beguiling as any comedian in Britain.” – Dominic Maxwell, The Times ★★★★.
“a toothy, tragicomic delight… cult purveyor of mock-heroic suburban standup.” – Brian Logan, The Guardian ★★★★.
“There is something quite magical about the world John Kearns creates… exquisite to watch.” – Alice Jones, The i ★★★★.
“Kearns’ poised, poetic stream of consciousness is the whirring logic of a very funny man with a profound understanding of the human condition.” – Jay Richardson, The Scotsman ★★★★.
“damn funny… An hour of this unique act, exquisite but robust, is more rewarding than any arena stand-up” – Steve Bennett, Chortle★★★★ ½.
