Sean Hughes comes to Devon

Sean Hughes comes to Devon

Archant

Fresh from performing two critically acclaimed shows at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, award-winning comedian, Sean Hughes, is set to play Exeter’s Corn Exchange on November 13,

From the moment the lights come up on Life Becomes Noises, revealing a hospital bed and Sean dressed in a slightly inappropriate costume, it is apparent that this is going to be no ordinary comedy show.

Here is a comedy performance from Sean like you’ve never seen before, resulting in the feelgood show of the year. This hilarious, yet poignant, tale is a beautiful insight into the lighter side of dying and getting older, going to places that comedy rarely goes, highlighting how ridiculous life is and how quickly it can be taken away.

The legendary Sean Hughes has performed all over the world, as well as being the youngest ever winner of the coveted Perrier Award.

The multi-talented Sean has many TV and radio credits to his name including writing and starring in the cult favourite Sean’s Show (Channel 4), and a long stint as team captain on Never Mind the Buzzcocks (BBC2).

Although he is well known for his various TV appearances, it is on the stage that Sean is most at home.
