Radio Active With Angus Deayton Plus Card Ninja
Saint Mary's Church, Petworth.
Radio Active ran for seven series on BBC Radio 4 then transferred to BBC2 as KYTV. In 2016, Angus Deayton, Helen Atkinson Wood, Michael Fenton Stevens and Philip Pope reunited to bring classic scripts from the award-winning radio series back to its Edinburgh Fringe birthplace. Following a sell-out season, they are performing at a few select venues and now come to us live in Petworth (or Midhurst, to be wholly accurate). Expect to catch up with classic characters such as long-suffering radio host Mike Channel, original foodie Anna Daptor, and the hapless Martin Brown, as well as musical parody bands the HeeBee GeeBees and Status Quid.
The Card Ninja
The evening kicks off in the company of comedian, magician - and ninja - Javier Jarquin. Hailing from New Zealand, Javier Jarquin presents a dazzling display of comedy and card stunts. Follow his journey from mild mannered card player to silent assassin using ordinary playing cards as weapons, as the Card Ninja ditches the magic wand and resurrects the classic, lost art of scaling, or card throwing. The result? A combination of award-winning comedy and amazing feats.
