Welcome to the wonderful, befuddling world of award-winning comedian Gerry Howell. If you haven't seen Gerry before, expect the unexpected, if you have - ditto. Gerry's performances lie somewhere between Mr Fantastic and the mysterious encyclopaedia of Uqbar. Whilst his mind flings itself from one delicious idea to another, you may find his body cankering around the stage like a loose nugget of popping corn, or crawling up the wall like a wild spider. Tread carefully and keep your ears to the ground... **** (ThreeWeeks). 'Surreal rambling brilliance' (TimeOut). Best Comedy Show Buxton Festival 2010.

Full press release

Award-winning comedian Gerry Howell returns to the Edinburgh Fringe with his much anticipated new stand-up / storytelling show, Gerry Howell: Glorious Invention!

Welcome to the wonderful, befuddling world of award-winning comedian Gerry Howell. Gerry's performances lie somewhere between Mr Fantastic and the mysterious encyclopedia of Uqbar. His imagination casts itself far and wide as he recounts his early years growing up in a post office or his experiences playing chess with pandas. He can tell you how Shakespeare was born in an ostrich egg, or about dressing up as an anagram for an evening out.

Whilst his mind flings itself from one delicious idea to another, you may find his body cankering around the stage like a loose nugget of popping corn, or crawling up the wall like a wild spider. Tread carefully and keep your ears to the ground...

If you haven't seen Gerry before, expect the unexpected, if you have - ditto. The greatest pleasure is the pleasure of anticipation. So that's something to look forward to. Glorious Invention: Gerry is expecting you...
