Multi award-winning comedian Sean Hughes is returning to Buxton with his new show.

Speaking about his latest creation, which is entitled Mumbo Jumbo, Sean said: “Throughout my life I have been battling to stay on the right side of sanity.

“This is because in middle age I’ve realised that the two sides of my brain are in constant conflict. There is common sense against mumbo jumbo and mumbo jumbo seems to have the upper hand.”

The show consists of stories including being serenaded at the break of dawn by Robert Smith, trekking mountain gorillas in Rwanda and coming to the conclusion that he will never have a proper conversation with his dear mum.

There will be a few poems and a three-minute musical about ageing too.

The funny man has received critical acclaim for his new work. Chortle, the specialist review website for comedians gave him four stars and said ‘for quick laughs look elsewhere, but for something that leaves more of an impression, Hughes is your man.”

Mumbo Jumbo is at Buxton’s Pavilion Arts Centre on October 24, at 7.30pm.
