TFHP is a truly immersive and absurd character comedy experience. It takes the anarchic chaos of alternative acts and turns it into an interactive show with music, clowning, games and general tomfoolery!

Think TFI Fridays meets Live At The Apollo via Little Britain and you’ll have some idea of what it’s all about. You’ll feel giddy and totally uplifted as poet Oh Standfast, the hilarious Leo Kearse as Pun Man, and Cheekykita take you on a hysteria filled trip, fuelled by fun, games and laughter!

Sound tracking the ride will be a DJ Jonny Unknown, other tricks and surprises will come in the shape of ‘The Tombola of Fate’, and a few impromptu games of musical statues and charades for good measure! You’re guaranteed to leave this party high on nothing but sheer face aching laughter.
