Friday 26 May @ Hull Truck Theatre

Joe has always been a nerd. In his teens, he hid it. In his twenties, he owned it. Now in his thirties, Joe is still obsessed with Nintendo, Star Wars, and Muppets’ Christmas Carol. But he’s started to sense something: a great disturbance in the fandom… Alone, sorting through his old things, Joe finds an old video tape, in an old VCR, long forgotten.

He presses play…and something amazing starts to happen!

Combining epic storytelling, razor-sharp impressions and a dose of theatrical magic, Fanboy is touring the UK and coming to Hull Truck Theatre, following critically acclaimed runs at Edinburgh Fringe and Soho Theatre!
