Comedian/ventriloquist Paul Zerdin, who won America’s Got Talent in 2015, is set to return to the Octagon Theatre in Yeovil.
Paul, a patron of the theatre’s Name A Seat initiative, will be helping to raise funds for the redevelopment of the venue.
The puppet master will be accompanied by his regular puppet playmates Sam, Baby and Albert, plus newcomers Roger, the bodyguard who claims to be ex-CIA, and a troublesome Urban Fox which follows him everywhere – most likely for the ‘snack value’.
The show, which will be filmed for future release, will feature a mix of Paul’s best loved comedy along with new material he will be ‘sneak-previewing’ for his forthcoming Edinburgh Festival shows.
Octagon arts and entertainments manager Adam Burgan said: “Paul has always been a brilliant friend and supporter of The Octagon Theatre and his shows are hugely popular with our audiences.
“Paul was the first live performance to re-open our venues during the pandemic and as the patron of our Name A Seat campaign he’s always been there to support our theatre. This event will be a superb evening of entertainment from a true master of comedy, all to support the development of our theatre.”
Tickets for ‘An Evening with Paul Zerdin’ on Wednesday, June 15, are for sale on a ‘pay what you can’ basis ranging from £5-£25 via www.octagon-theatre.co.uk/whats-on/comedy/an-evening-with-paul-zerdin/8844. All proceeds will go to the Foyer Club registered charity.
