In his first ever solo UK stand-up tour, Mike Bubbins, star of hit podcast The Socially Distant Sports Bar, and of BBC television comedies Mammoth, Tourist Trap and The Unexplainers, unleashes THROWBACK here at the Torch Theatre this March … And things may never be the same again.

THROWBACK is a powerful, thought-provoking, visceral hour of stand-up comedy, that pushes boundaries, defies neat descriptions and challenges the audience...AS IF IT IS!

It’s actually an hour and a half of really funny stories, pretty impressive characterisations, possibly a song (he said he’ll see how that goes), a bit of nostalgia about the good old days, a bit of optimism about the good new days, and Mike generally having a laugh about life and not taking himself, or anything else, too seriously. Having said that, he may, at some point in the show, get very annoyed at berks, whether in the past, the present, or the future.

So basically THROWBACK is a comedy show about Bubbins sharing and bringing to life, the stuff that he finds funny. As comedy concepts go, it’s a pretty straightforward one, really.

‘They asked me to do a UK comedy tour, called THROWBACK...and so I did,’ said Mike, who has been making audiences cry with laughter up and down the country

“I saw your stand-up comedy, and I was stunned by how funny you were. At one point I begged for help from my wife, because I was laughing so hard that I could not breathe. The problem was, she was laughing even harder than me! And then I looked around, and although my eyes were streaming with tears of joy, I could make out that everyone, from teenagers to people in late middle-age, were in a similar predicament! You should come with a health warning!” said audience member, John.

Mike Bubbins: Throwback will visit the Torch Theatre on Friday 24 March at 8pm. Tickets are £19.50. Tickets can be purchased from the Box Office Torch Theatre on 01646 695267 or online here
