30 years since The Fast Show first burst onto our television screens, “the defining comedy sketch show of the Nineties” is back, live on tour.
Charlie Higson and Paul Whitehouse are reuniting with Simon Day, John Thomson, Arabella Weir and Mark Williams for the show at The Alexandra, Birmingham on 28 March 2024.
This live tour will be a huge treat for fans of the TV sketch show and provide a real behind-the-scenes insight into some of their favourite characters and catchphrases. The cast will also chat together about how it all began, how they made the TV show and created the characters and the fun they had doing it.
Fans can expect to see the return of many of their favourite characters, including Ted & Ralph, Jesse, Swiss Toni, Does My Bum Look Big In This?, Dave Angel, Jazz Club, The Suit You Tailors, Ron Manager, The Mad Painter, Rowley Birkin, Bob Fleming, Competitive Dad, Professor Denzil Dexter, and The Girl Who Boys Can’t Hear.
Higson said: “Taking the Fast Show out on tour is very much like making love to a beautiful woman.”
Whitehouse added: “I’m afraid I was very drunk.”
