Spencer Jones

Sold out

This work in progress show is the very start of an idea I have about doing a kind of play. But with routines within it.  So there will be props and music.

Don’t worry. I’m 88% sure I haven’t disappeared up my own arse. There will be a story. All set in a bedsit. A story about a man (me) playing a man (Herbert) who is worried about an audition (Job interviews for dickheads). So that’s the big idea. I’ve no idea how it will pan out. So make sure there’s nothing else on at the same time you fancy seeing.

Lots of love Spencer xxx

As seen on Live At The Apollo (BBC Two), Sky’s Spencer Jones’ Christmas, BBC Three’s Uncle, and BBC One’s Upstart Crow

Heterosexist society has meant that the great contributions of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Asexual, Non-Binary and Intersex individuals have been systematically down-played, or entirely erased. LGBT+ History Month is a fantastic opportunity to combat this, sparking discussion and opening powerful…
