¿Hablas Inglés? comes to London for one night only ahead of the Edinburgh Fringe.
I’m the first person in the world to perform English speaking comedy in several countries, but that’s not the interesting part. I was defrauded, robbed, arrested, held up at knife point, attacked, bribed & made bribes! Caught up in riot(s). Earthquake(s). Political protest(s). All plural! Drug smuggling & illegal border crossings, love, sex & prostitution. I hitchhiked, slept on the streets, climbed volcanoes and surfed down them. I came close to death. I witnessed death, disease, homelessness, power, poverty and the best and worst sides of humanity. I found fame at the Olympic Games in Rio! I even learnt a language. Sort of. I took Ayahuasca & San Pedro on my “#journey”. I chased snakes, crocs & piranha yet only managed to catch a fever in the Amazon. I had a LOT of diarrhea! I was homesick and lonely. But none of it compares to the torture of sleeping on the top bunk in a 20 bed dorm of a party hostel with no hot water or Wi-Fi. The horror! Was it all worth it? Most definitely!
I met some weird & wonderful characters I’d like to introduce to you. I left with a beard, a debt & some bloody great stories! I invested a year & a half of my life. I think it’s worth an hour of yours.
‘¿Hablas Inglés?’ is an award shortlisted show which follows the emotional adventures & hilarious mishaps of a vagabond comedian on a remarkable tour as he performs stand-up comedy in countries that’ve never had it before. In English AND Spanish. No big deal.
