PREVIEW: The Horne Section @ Gala Theatre & Cinema

Posted on February 16th 2017 by Whats on Northeast

When: 24th February 2017
Tickets: £17.50

Prepare to have stand-up and live music collide in a spontaneous combustion of entertainment as Alex Horne (creator of the TV series ‘Taskmaster’ and all-round funnyman) brings his band of merry men to the Gala Theatre & Cinema next week.

The Horne Section are following up their hit BBC Radio 4 series and many years of sell-out shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and London’s West End, the group are back to bring hilarious hijinks to Durham.

In the past the group have presented shows such as ‘The Horne Section’s Questions Sessions’, which pitted some of the finest contemporary comedians against each other to compete in some of the most unlikely tasks, while ‘Horne Section’s Christmas’ aired on Sky Arts on Christmas Day and was described by Chortle as “a deliciously blasphemous delight.” Cheeky!

As the first band ever to host popular music quiz show ‘Never Mind The Buzzcocks’ and regulars on ‘8 Out Of 10 Cats’, the group are promising a mix of spontaneous stand-up, spectacular performance pieces and some (perhaps) surprisingly good music! The Horne Section are guaranteed to put on a show not like any other!

We can’t recommend The Horne Section highly enough” ★★★★★ Time Out

A frivolously funny mash-up of music and mirth” ★★★★ Evening Standard

A joyful, high-octane collision of stand-up, musical improvisation and variety…one of the most original and entertaining comedy cabarets you’ll seeThe Guardian
