“An absolute gem of a comedy show about teenage cycling, sullied dreams and migrating from the North. Every line of his script is wired for laughter”
“An impeccably woven piece of one-man storytelling … brilliantly funny”
Following a phenomenal sell-out run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Foster’s Comedy Award Nominee Kieran Hodgson is grabbing his bike and taking his show ‘Lance‘ on the road with his début national tour.
In 2003 Lance Armstrong won his 5th consecutive Tour de France, an achievement watched by a young and impressionable Kieran Hodgson from his Holmfirth home. ‘Lance‘ is the hilarious story of growing up and moving on in the wake of being betrayed by your hero.
‘Lance‘ traces Kieran’s experiences growing up and sees him embody his best friends in the Boy Scouts, reliving the years spent with them on his bicycle, as well as some of the colourful characters he met once he moved down South. This lively personal narrative is tied together through a representation of his fallen hero, Lance Armstrong, culminating with the Tour de France’s incongruous arrival in Yorkshire last year, and Lance’s exposure and public humiliation.
“Kieran Hodgson has here served up a one-man effort that lets his comedic talents roar as never before … Tour de France? Tour de force, more like”
“Hodgson has penned a beautiful, poignant and most importantly very funny show about the innocence lost, and how you can never truly go home again”
As well as displaying his impressive and hilarious live character comedy, Hodgson has appeared in BBC’s ‘Jonathan Creek‘ and ‘Count Arthur Strong‘ as well as E4′s ‘Drifters‘ and the box office smash ‘Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa‘. As a regular on BBC Radio 4, Kieran has appeared in shows such as ‘What The Future?‘ and ‘Newsjack‘, and was a regular on the four part sitcom ‘The Lentil Sorters‘ with Vincent Franklin, Rebekah Staton and Julia Deakin.
So watch as Hodgson narrates his way through a Tour de force of weird and wonderful characters in a coming of age story filled with betrayal and redemption bound to leave you laughing.
