'Welcome to my Retrospective. This year I really want to revisit three of my shows from the past and perform them side by side, one night after another. While this might seem an unusual idea, I want to do this because all three of these shows are very different from one another and were all created in a short period of time (2009-2012). I didn’t necessarily intend to create three such different shows; I think they turned out the way they did simply because of an urge on my part to experiment with all aspects of a comedy show. One is a show about structure with an unexpected ending, one is built around fantasies of my mind, whilst the other has two pieces which are uncompromising and extreme, but in different ways. They have all become shows I am very proud of and that I would love to share with my audiences today.' Paul Foot 2015

Deep within the sinking sands of the perspex jungle of youth, in the forgotten nebula of nothingness, just off the warm waste waters of New Norfolk, comes an objet du désir: a trombone fruit. Needless to say, it's another warm year.
