NOMINEE: LASTMINUTE.COM EDINBURGH COMEDY AWARDS – BEST SHOW 2016
Kieran Hodgson’s smash hit comedy Maestro comes to Soho.
The highly anticipated follow up to his 2015 Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award Nominated show Lance was one of the most talked about shows of the 2016 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, seeing Kieran earn his second nomination for best comedy show.
Directed and produced by Berk’s Nest, this new hour of comedy traces Kieran’s musical roots as he attempts to compose a symphony.
In 2003 Kieran Hodgson heard the music of Gustav Mahler and decided to write a symphony. 13 years later he returns to the Soho Theatre with a story about falling in love and attempting something far beyond your abilities. Plus a violin. In his most personal and ambitious show to date, Kieran creates a story about trying to find love when you’re the kind of loser who writes classical music instead of playing football.
Age Recommendation: 16+
Running Time: 60 mins
