Matt Chorley: Who Is In Charge Here?

Saturday 19 February, 7.30pm
Djanogly Theatre


£22.50 (£15 concessions)
Suitable for ages 14+

Matt Chorley has spent the past 15 years in Westminster seeing up close how politics works, or doesn’t. After the sell-out success of his first tour This Is Not Normal, the award-winning Times columnist and Times Radio presenter is back with a hilarious new show exploring who really calls the shots. Is the Prime Minister actually in charge, or at the mercy of the opposition, backbenchers, lobbyists, the media, spin doctors, his wife, or the Queen?

Great British stand up is alive and well… Matt Chorley with acid wit and music hall timing" Andrew Marr

No politician is spared in this delightful display of disdain." ★★★★ The Times

Engaging, funny, entertaining." Rory Bremner
