You Look Like Ants, This Looks Like A Competition!

© Stuart Silver / The Soho Theatre

Thanks to the kind people at the Soho Theatre, we can offer a handful of free tickets to see Stuart Silver‘s new show, You Look Like Ants this weekend!

Silver, who appeared in Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace, Man To Man With Dean Learner and The Mighty Boosh, as well as a ten year, BAFTA winning live partnership with Kim Noble, has created his first solo show since Noble & Silver came to a natural end, and is performing it every night for the next ten days at Soho Theatre Upstairs.

You Look Like Ants is an intimate, humorous tragi-ballad live show, promising a conversational and textually rich epic journey where Stuart seeks to get a hold on what life is really about, under the crush of great advice. With ukulele when you least expect it. And when you expect it.

The show runs at the Soho Theatre from tonight until Saturday 29th October, and we have a couple of pairs of tickets for Thursday 20th October, Friday 21st October and Saturday 22nd October’s performances to give away.

All you have to do is come up with an amusing caption to the ant-filled image you see above.  Obviously, the closer you can get to an ant-pun the better!

Email your answers, along with your preferred show date [Thurs 20th, Fri 21st, Sat 22nd] to and we’ll send your responses over to the Soho Theatre team, who will judge the results and contact the winners!

Entries must be received by 3pm tomorrow, Thursday 20th October.


All entries MUST be sent to by 15:00pm on Thursday 20th October 2011.  One entry per reader.  The Velvet Onion will not accept entries as comments on this article, replies on our Facebook/Twitter pages, messages on our forum or emailed to any other account.   No personal information required, but your email addresses will be shared with The Soho Theatre.  Your email addresses will not be added to mailing lists or subscriber services, nor will they be shared beyond The Velvet Onion and The Soho Theatre.  Submission of an entry does not equate to confirmation of tickets, merely as entry to a judged competition.  Winners will be decided and contacted by The Soho Theatre, though The Velvet Onion may print the names of winners on it’s website and social networking pages.   The Velvet Onion and The Soho Theatre reserves the right to withdraw this competition if any overriding issues arise.  There is no monetary value to this competition and no physical prize.
