The Terror Of A Missing Barratt

24 Oct

We’ve previously mentioned that Julian Barratt would be contributing to Soho Theatre’s annual Halloween show Terror, which begins later this week.

However, we’re sorry to have recently discovered that Barratt is no longer involved in Terror 2011. Apologies to anyone who has purchased tickets based on our previous announcements, although we’re confident that you’ll enjoy the performance nevertheless. Based on reports from previous years, Terror provides the perfect terrifying evening for this time of year!

Soho Theatre has an array of other terrific acts for you to see for the next few months, and we hardly know where to start with their ever expanding list. In addition to Terror 2011 (which includes a special appearance from one half of the fabulous cabaret act Frisky & Mannish and Laura Corcoran) you can also see the recently reviewed Stuart Silver, letting you inside his brain-space until 29th October.

Then there’s also Soho Later, with Sarah Kendall (who you may recognise from JackalFilms‘ Beehive), the magnificent Tim Key, for a few dates at the end of this year, and also Stewart Lee (who needs no introduction to fans of the Booshniverse!), who can be found expressing himself there from November until February. Carl-Einar Hackner (pictured), a Swedish version of Tommy Cooper, who left us dazed and astounded at a past Fulchfest, will also be performing at the theatre next month.

Furthermore, Booshdom’s own Paul Foot will be a part of Set List which will be running through-out December. The show is described as “A Whose Line Is It Anyway?-style challenge for stand-up comedy” and features big names such as Tim Minchin, Rich Hall, Phill Jupitus!

We have only just scratched the surface of what can be found at this small but famous venue, so don’t be sad about a lack of Barratt – and book yourself a seat to one of many other brilliant shows!
