A staggering 20 years after their hit BBC show In Da Bungalow first burst on to our screens, quadruple Bafta award winners Dick & Dom are bringing their own special kind of mayhem to Nottingham Theatre Royal on October 9.

Expect fun for all ages in a show packed with chaos and familiar favourites including Two-Word Tango, Musical Splatues, The Grunty Song, Fairly Hairy Fizzogs, Pants Dance, and of course Bogies, the live show promises to bring the spirit of Da Bungalow back to life.

Expect the unexpected as the legendary Creamy Muck Muck game returns and, with appearances from Diddy Dick and Dom, and D.I Harry Batt, no member of the audience is safe!

    Meanwhile, the audacious comic and actor Nick Helm is back on tour with What Have We Become?, hot on the heels of a run at the Edinburgh Fringe.

    The show reaches Nottingham Glee on Thursday, October, 20.

    Join Nick as he embarks on a show so insightful, so honest, so legitimate that it will fix all of society’s problems and lead the way to a new plane of existence.

    Finally, Nottingham Playhouse is the venue for a visit on October 5 by multi-award-winning improvised comedy troupe Austentatious.

    The smash-hit Regency comedy romp is an improvised comedy play starring a cast of the country’s quickest comic performers.

    Check out comic and actor Nick Helm when he performs at Nottingham Glee.

    Every single show the cast conjures up a brand new ‘lost’ Jane Austen novel based on nothing more than a title suggested by the audience.

    No two shows are ever the same, with previous ‘lost’ masterpieces including 'Crazy Rich Georgians', 'Double 0 Darcy' & 'Game of Scones'.

    Performed in period costume with live musical accompaniment, this is a Regency treat guaranteed to delight Austen novices and die-hard fans alike.

    The rotating cast is made up of a host of acclaimed comedy talent including the likes of Cariad Lloyd and Rachel Parris.

    The show stars a varying line-up of the cast at each tour date.
