The Ape That Got Lucky - T01113212983

La-di-da smartypants Mr. Chris Addison - star of BBC TV’s The Thick of It and Lab Rats - is back with a special, one-off revival, exclusively for the Shrewsbury Darwin Festival, of his critically acclaimed 2003 stand-up show The Ape That Got Lucky, which spawned a Sony Award-winning series for Radio 4. The subject? Why, the evolution of Mankind itself, discussed through the medium of jokes, lies, whimsy, half-truths, a fair amount of sweating and even the odd fact. Do come, there’s a dear. Please note this performance is likely to contain adult material that some people may find offensive.

Atomicity - T1972792984

Celebrated la-di-da smartypants and Perrier Award Nominee Chris Addison presents, for your amusement and derision, a trawl through the very fabric of the Universe. Stopping only to fail to answer important questions such as "What are we made of?", Did somebody forget to put something in the recipe?" and "Is this your vehicle, sir?" the big ponce will be spinning jokes, stories, lies, whimsy and nonsense. In that order

Civilisation - T0275748943

What exactly is Civilisation? What elements go to make it up? Can I get them at Argos? Have you seen my glasses? These are the sort of questions that [Chris Addison] will be addressing in his new show. What can you expect? Why, jokes, stories, ill-conceived theories, sweeping generalisations, downright lies, whimsy, pomposity and rank poncery of the highest water of course. Not to mention a fair bit of sweat, we'll be bound.
