Buxton man Matt Pritchard is returning to his home town for the Fringe... but will you recognise him?

The award-winning performer is coming back to Buxton Fringe Festival with a brand new comedy show but this time he’s not travelling alone.

His alter ego is Johnny Facade, who just can’t help himself. Trouble follows him and he follows trouble.

One day they’ll meet, but will they get on?

Featuring a mixture of award-winning magic, multimedia and subversive storytelling. Lab Monkey Productions prides itself on creating hilarious clean comedy that appeals to a broad range of ages making this an ideal treat for all the family.

Previous shows at Buxton Fringe Festival have proved a huge hit with audiences of all ages and regularly sell out.

The show’s magical creator Matt Pritchard, who grew up in Buxton, is excited to be back home.

“The Fringe is an amazing fortnight. There’s a real buzz to the town and I love being part of that.” says Matt.

Reviewers said: “A hard driving mix of magic and twisted science.” Oxfringe 2010

“Rapid-fire delivery of jokes and well rehearsed sleight of hand.” Buxton Fringe review.
