Sean Hughes : Penguins

Following a critically acclaimed run at the Edinburgh Fringe and a hugely successful 2013/14 tour, award winning master of storytelling and legendary stand-up Sean Hughes’ brilliant new show, Penguins, comes to The Met in Bury on Wednesday 15 October at 8pm.


Sean Hughes is at his honest and hilarious best in this poignant and moving theatrical comedy show – which was named Best Comedy Show at the Herald Angels Awards 2013. Packed full of surprises, hidden twists and recurring themes, Sean takes us back to his upbringing; exploring the utter awkwardness of teenage life, weaving in his family, his school days, the business of friendship and tying it all in to the present.

Despite a prolonged absence from the comedy arena, he was recently voted No. 40 in Channel 4?s ‘World’s 100 Greatest Comedians’ poll.
