The amicable and endearing Nina Conti will take to the stage at London’s Criterion Theatre next month; the award-winning comedian will be performing her show, ‘In Your Face’, from the 25th February – 12th March, which is destined to once again leave the audiences in fits of laughter.
Now a seasoned veteran of ventriloquism, Conti intends to develop her act even further in London, by utilising members of the audience as her puppets. This is achieved by asking volunteers to join her on stage and wear a strap-on mask, as she embarrasses them light-heartedly. Although Conti has trialled this brave concept in Live at the Apollo and Russell Howard’s Good News for example, ‘In Your Face’ promises to include more improvisation and interaction with the audience. Therefore, there will be no limit to the hilarity of the show, as truly anything can happen. Undoubtedly, Conti will also expose her other well-known characters during ‘In Your Face’, such as Scottish Granny and the cynically discourteous monkey named Monk.
Conti is no stranger to the stage or screen, having headlined regularly at London Comedy and appearing most recently as a guest star on 8 out of 10 Cats Does Countdown. She has also spent much of her career as an actress in the television series Black Books. Arguably her most impressive achievements to date are winning a British Comedy Award and her film being nominated for a BAFTA – all without moving her mouth!
Now Conti is gracing the stage of comedy once again, expectant audiences await her hilarious new material with eager anticipation.
