Boris: World King
Trafalgar Studio Two
With his days as Mayor of London numbered, Britain’s favourite comedy politician casts himself in another leading role: the star of his own West End show. This gaffe-a-minute comedy sees the thinking man’s idiot wobbling on the brink of power. This rollicking tale packs in pay-as-you-go bikes, wiff-waff, and an ancient Greek lecture for good measure. Before long, verbal slips, trips and divine interruption cue a new battle – for his very political existence. Boris Johnson: politician, columnist, biographer, TV personality, eighth cousin of David Cameron, and one of GQ magazine’s Worst Dressed Men. And now, appearing nightly at the West End theatre closest to Downing Street! Following a complete sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe, the smash hit satire by writer Tom Crawshaw and director Yaz Al-Shaater transfers to the West End for just four weeks. Starring David Benson as Boris Johnson (One Man Two Guvnors; Fringe First award-winning Think No Evil Of Us and Lockerbie: Unfinished Business).
