He’ll also recall tales from his time in Dr Who, Coronation Street and other TV classics.

Mr Challis will also meet fans after the show to sign autographs and pose for pictures, while signing copies of his autobiography, Being Boycie, and novel, Reggie: A Stag At Bay.

After a sell-out Edinburgh run and at the end of his UK tour Phil Wang is coming to Thame with his fantastic solo show: Kinabalu.

Phil Wang is a son of the British Empire. But in a world intent on building walls and bolstering borders, what is a Commonwealth man to do?  Some blistering new comedy gold – that’s what.

As a Malaysian-born son of Chinese and British parents, Phil Wang has a unique and nuanced view of ethnicity and identity. In Kinabalu, he explores his ‘immigrant patriotism’ with silliness and sophistication in equal parts.

As seen on: Live at The Apollo, Have I Got News For You, Would I Lie To You?, and 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown, Room 101, Matt Forde’s Unspun.

Giles Shenton (who successfully performed Old Herbaceous at the Players Theatre in February last year) returns with a thought provoking and cleverly constructed, piece of theatre about a man preparing to fulfil his lifelong ambition to be a stand-up comedian, “…puts one in mind of Alan Bennett’s Talking Heads”

My Dog’s Got No Nose takes us on a journey through the events surrounding a stand-up comedian’s first ever performance. His debut is the fulfilment of a lifelong dream where stand-up comedy, unrequited love, animal lovers, facts of life, sibling rivalries and mercy killing are just some of the elements covered in this very funny and bittersweet story, as we discover that both the man and the performance are not quite what they seem.
