Noise Next Door: Hometown Heroes

Wednesday 8 Feb @ Hull Truck Theatre

The quickest wits in comedy are coming to town with a side-splitting evening of hilarious off-the-cuff songs, scenes and characters. The stars of ‘Tonight at the Palladium’ (ITV1) will spin comedy gold out of the all things that YOU, the live audience, think are the best, worst and downright weirdest things about your hometown. Maybe a bit of local laughter really can save the day!

The Noise Next Door are thirteen-time sell-out veterans of The Edinburgh Fringe and have appeared on ‘The One Show’ (BBC One), ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ (ITV1), and ‘Roast Battle’ (Comedy Central). They have also appeared alongside the likes of Michael McIntyre, Katherine Ryan, Romesh Ranganathan and Harry Hill.

Thursday Lates: An Evening with Emily Oetegenn

Thursday 9 Feb @ Humber Street Gallery

As she grapples with the idea of having no dignity in denying her own identity, spoken word artist and filmmaker Emily Oetegenn explores the multi-dimensional fragments of herself, from fledgling contemplation to phoenix fruition.

The evening will see her share her signature spoken word, her original short film Reprise and her new film commission Alternative Stratosphere, exploring queer love, disability and sensuality filmed by Fly Girl Films at Hull New Theatre.

Following this, there will be a short Q&A session on her process of writing, hopes for the future and Walt Disney Studios’ inspiration.
