21:30, Fri 27th January 2017 - Sat 28th January 2017 at Corpus Playroom
Lent Week 1
Simone's Speaking Service organises for inspirational speakers to talk to high-performing undergraduates at universities both in the UK and abroad, encouraging students to think about their lives, their careers, and their futures.
Join Cambridge comedian John Tothill for an hour of absurd character monologues in this hilarious, bizarre and heart-warming one-man show, playing for just two nights at the Corpus Playroom. Meet Professor Julian Pringle, academic and public intellectual, as he ruminates on the key to a happy life with his inimitable flair. Or local councillor John Higgins, who this year is running for the esteemed post of Mayor of West Fumberland. And, of course, Simone-Diane le Roulé, the unbelievably successful businesswoman-cum-impresario who brought these extraordinary men and women together.
It’s a show that you’d be mad or busy to miss. John Tothill reminds students that to have these speakers give up their time to talk to you is a privilege, so get your tickets now.
