Double Edinburgh Comedy Award winner, John Kearns (Shtick, Sight Gags for Perverts), presents a brand new show for Christmas. 'In 2011 and 2012 I recorded my family's Christmas dinners (2:36:19 and 2:35:19 respectively). Four years later I sat in a library and listened to them. They reveal such details as the changing landscape of South London bus routes and the disappearance of cod, all soundtracked to Elvis singing The Wonderful World of Christmas. At time of writing, I can't promise that this isn't the entire show.'Presented byShow and Tell.

Sight Gags for Perverts, is how one critic described Stanley Kubrick's Dr Strangelove upon its release. Stan cherished this, writing it down on a list headed Titles in Search of a Script. It was never made, this won't be either. I've got a little wig and some false teeth, a few things to say about Berlin Zoo before wearing a dress and singing Bruce Springsteen. Support from Yogi Baby. For ages 16+. Running time: 60mins
