~Original, funny and unique. Words often used to describe comedian and impressionist Rory Bremner, a comic who started his career in the mid 80s.

This was also a time of puppetry fascination on a political front much like the work Bremner did and still continues to do so. Spitting Image ran from 26th February 1984 - 18th  February 1996. For 22 years we were laughing at the many political figures characterized in puppet form from  voices such as Chris Barrie, Harry Enfield and John Sessions.

For the past twenty years ventriloquism has been a regular feature of the Royal Variety Show and since 2007 a number of contestants on Britain’s Got Talent have attempted some form of ventriloquist act.

Original, funny and unique has now been labelled to a new form of ventriloquism for an act that has taken the UK by storm. The Blackburn King Georges Hall are delighted she is coming to the North West.

Nina Conti comes courtesy of monkey, a mask and  a whole load of tricks to shake up your evening. As described by the Daily Telegraph she is ‘gut bustingly funny’.

Unsuspecting members of the public await their fate of being invited on to the stage unbeknown to the fact that they could be wearing a mask and Nina skilfully voices their interpretation of what’s going on. It’s sheer brilliance at it’s best.

‘In Your Face’ is scheduled to take place on Saturday 22nd October 2016 at 7.30pm. Tickets are priced at £20 per person. It will take place in the concert hall. Please note :- a service charge will apply to all bookings made with debit/credit cards. 12+only. Under 16’s must be accompanied by an adult. To book tickets simply dial :- 01254 582 579.

The King Georges Hall is situated in Northgate, Blackburn Lancashire. You will find it nestled in between a busy nightlife  with pubs, clubs, cafes and restaurants and a thriving  college which is one of the best educational institutions in the North West.


Nina Conti has won a British Comedy Award, performed live at the Apollo, appeared on Russell Howard’s  Good News, worked the audience on Sunday Night at the Palladium and has been short listed for a BAFTA nominated film.

Clearly demonstrating that this is a performer who has worked the circuits. With her comic timing and quick witted nature she is able to improvise with ease and professionalism in a slick and cool way, leaving
 her contemporaries somewhat bemused by seamless delivery.

Make it a date. > Nina Conti coming to the King Georges, Blackburn, Saturday 22nd October 2016 at 7.30pm.
