BEN VAN DER VELDE: Fablemaker
An improvised comedy adventure with this ‘master of audience interaction’ (Huffington Post) as he raids the library of his fantastical imagination to create thrillers, romances, ghost stories and more original freewheeling tales that’ve never been told before and never will be again. ‘Wonderfully improvised riffs showcasing his impressive spontaneity and sharp tongue’ (Edinburgh Festivals Magazine). ‘On flights of fancy, he pushes ideas to extremes and displays a crackling, spontaneous energy in which we’re swept up’ (Fest). ‘His hit rate is impressive, while his in-the-moment style creates a buzz of excitement in the room’ (Chortle.co.uk).
