Tim Key – Masterslut (The Invisible Dot)

By | Published on Thursday 25 August 2011

As a man in a suit submerges himself in a bath fully clothed, you may wonder whether you’ve come to the right show and have instead accidentally walked in on a piece of experimental theatre. That, however, is the most refreshing thing about Tim Key; whilst always familiar and likeable, he is fantastically subversive and at times just plain eccentric. He reads out his infamous poems that begin with lines such as, “There was a sparrow obsessed with Emma Bunton” and only go further down the rabbit-hole of odd as they progress. There is no doubt that Key is on the up, so go and see him while he’s still performing at smaller venues.

Pleasance Dome, 3 – 29 Aug (not 15), 9.45pm (10.40pm), £11.00 – £14.00, fpp159.
