Christopher Bliss “The man who turns wives into widows” (With live soundtrack)

Rob Carter’s cult hit creation is back with a glossy revamp of his 2016 debut show. Christopher Bliss is Shropshire’s greatest drivel-merchant. He’s tackled novels, he’s conquered theatre, now he’s back to show you his most ambitious project: live cinema. This is an action-packed tale of wives, widows and everything in-between. As seen on Siblings (BBC), Peep Show and Fresh Meat (Channel 4). 'This is how character comedy should be done' ★★★★ (Chortle.co.uk). 'One of this year’s hidden treasures… consistently, pant-wettingly funny' ★★★★ (Fest).
