These days Justins not certain about anything apart from his uncertainty Brexit looms, it appears the Cold War is being rebooted and thats before we begin to worry about whats happening in America..closer to home hes starting to feel redundant as a parent. One kid is leaving home, the dog is getting older and doesnt need much walking, and the youngest kid hits thirteen and cancels the family subscription to The Beano.On top of this the golden age of the Northern straight white male comedian has gone the way of the dinosaurs. How will he adapt if he wants to survive? What next for this Northern Joker? What can he talk to his daughter about now she cares little for Dennis the Menace and the Bash St Kids? Hang on. Perhaps nothing has changed that much. When he was thirteen, the Russians were scary, the White House was a madhouse and hed never been to Europe anyhow. Thinking back this was when his reading habits changed too, more Dark Knight than Desperate Dan, more Catwoman than Minnie the Minx. Perhaps our heroes never went away.they just waited for us to pick them up again. Perhaps she just needs a different type of comic.He charms the pants off the crowd…Sunday TimesComedic tour-de-force.brought a tear to a critical glass eye…The HeraldSimultaneously down-to-earth and out of this world…The ListThe amount of first-rate comic craft that goes into his deceptively simple routines is worthy of admiration…GuardianAge guidance: 14+

Drop dead gorgeous, sassy and smart, Ruby Wax brings her new one-woman show to the stage.
Based on her number one best seller, “A Mindfulness Guide for the Frazzled.” She’s been honoured with the title of poster girl for mental illness; once crazy now less so, she gives a tour of the mind – how to use it, not lose it.
Ruby Wax if you don’t know is a much loved, U.S. born comedy-actor-writer of incredibly successful books and TV shows including script editor of “Absolutely Fabulous” and is a mental health campaigner.
This event is your passport to saner living and is a follow up to her previous sell out show and book, “Sane New World.”
By the way, she graduated from Oxford with a Masters in Mindfulness–based Cognitive Therapy (at a late stage) three years ago so she should know her stuff.
