Nina Conti: In Your Face
Mon 9 Feb 2015 – Sat 14 Feb 2015
Groundbreaking ventriloquist, BAFTA nominated filmmaker and British Comedy Award winner Nina Conti returns to the Tricycle to improvise her new show into existence!
Lauded for her distinctive shows which balance laughs with poignant reflections on the psyche, Conti has had numerous sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and a national tour with Dolly Mixtures. Her appearances on Live at the Apollo (BBC1), QI (BBC2), Russell Howard’s Good News (BBC3) and Family Tree (HBO / BBC2) have led to viral clips attracting hits in their millions all across the globe. Her hotly anticipated appearance follows her BAFTA nomination for her documentary A Ventriloquist’s Story: Her Master’s Voice, a unique and brave requiem for her ex-lover and mentor, the late Ken Campbell as well as a British Comedy Award for Best Female.
WINNER: Best Comedy Award for Best Female 2013
