Udderbelly 2016: Sean Hughes – Mumbo Jumbo
The veteran comedian exposes all in this hilarious and revealing routine
Udderbelly is back, and this year it's bigger than ever. With a mammoth 15-week run, get ready for an extravaganza of music, comedy and all manner of entertainment, all inside the festival's iconic, upside-down purple cow on the South Bank. Multi-award winning comedian Sean Hughes is back with a new show called Mumbo Jumbo. Throughout his life he has been battling to stay on the right side of sanity. This is because in middle age he has realised that the two sides of his brain are in constant conflict. There is common sense against mumbo jumbo and mumbo jumbo seems to have the upper hand. The show consists of stories including being serenaded at the break of dawn by Robert Smith, trekking mountain gorillas in Rwanda and coming to the conclusion that he will never have a proper conversation with his dear mum. There will be a few poems and a 3 minute musical about ageing too. Not suitable for under 15s. Valid ID required for ticket collection. Ticket sales are final and bookings cannot be amended, exchanged or refunded (unless of course the performance is cancelled). All listed offers are subject to availability and can be withdrawn at any time.
"Hughes swiftly and seamlessly alternates between pathos and gags."
