With the announcement that we’ve got Sarah Millican here on Tuesday 8 December (tickets are selling fast), we’re delighted to tell you that Nina Conti, another brilliant female comedian, is here on Friday 2 October with her new show In Your Face.
Not only a comedian, Nina’s a ventriloquist who’s bagged a British Comedy Award, stormed Live at the Apollo, Russell Howard’s Good News, Sunday Night at the Palladium and made a BAFTA nominated film – all without moving her lips.
This year, Nina will create a new show each night by plucking inspiration from the audience. Strap into the mask as Nina gets in your face. With the help of her puppet Monkey and a bag of tricks, anything can happen in this unmissable improvised adventure of hilarious witchery.
Nina began her career as an actress with the Royal Shakespeare Company before anarchic theatre director inspired her to become a ventriloquist. In 2008, she won the prestigious Barry Award at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival with her solo show Complete and Utter Conti. In 2010, Talk to The Hand sold out in Edinburgh, London, Melbourne, Sydney Opera House and New York.
