WORKSOP’S Acorn Theatre is set to welcome two national treasures to the town to present an evening of poetry and cartoons.
Broadcaster and comedian Ian McMillan joins with several times ‘Cartoonist of the Year’ Tony Husband to present A Cartoon History of Here, on Thursday 17th February at 7.30pm.
McMillan is well-known for his popular and funny poetry as well as his regular spots on TV and radio, including Have I Got News for You and The Today Programme.
He also hosts the weekly hit show The Verb on Radio 3 and was a castaway on Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs in November.
Tony Husband is one of the UK’s most celebrated cartoonists, with cartoons published in The Times, Sunday Express and Private Eye. He is currently Cartoonist in Residence at The Lowry and has been named Cartoonist of the Year an unprecedented ten times!
Ian performs his solo poetry comedy spot and is joined on stage by cartoonist Tony for some impressive off-the-cuff large scale cartoon drawing. Ian and Tony then take the audience’s own ideas and stories and perform them as comedy poetry and large-scale live cartoon drawing right in front of your eyes.
A Cartoon History of Here is at The Acorn Theatre, on Queen Street, and is suitable for adults and children from the age of nine.
Tickets are priced £7 & £6. To book, call the box office on (01909) 501817 or visit www.acorntheatre.net.
