Live Nation & Mike Leigh Associates Presents: A Kitchen Nightmare - Fundraising Event
Starring Liam Hourican and Jim Roche.
Directed by Tom Collinson
Star of Channel 4’s Very Important People, Irish comedian and impressionist Liam Hourican, is fundraising for his Edinburgh Fringe debut with an exhilarating romp through the disparate realms of bareknuckle fighting, TV cookery shows and Am Dram.
Irish premier and bare-knuckle boxer Mick Connor has vowed to shake up the political establishment with his fists, but his private life is a mess. While all of his brothers and most of his friends are sorted, Mick just can’t seem to find that special person to settle into a long term feud with. He embarks on a quest to find personal fulfilment and meets a host of extraordinary characters along the way, from Gordon Ramsay to Mickey Rourke.
Celebrity impressions and brilliant original characters come together in this hour long sketch show that played to full houses at Dave’s Leicester Comedy Festival in February.
