“Technically immaculate, it’s what he does with his slick talent that really sets him apart. His relationship with the characters has all the dramatic tension of a real life double act” The Guardian
“A ventriloquist for the South Park generation” The Stage
“When you are not laughing you are simply in awe” Three Weeks Edinburgh
America’s Got Talent 2015 winner, British ventriloquist and comedian, Paul Zerdin, is returning to the UK in the autumn of 2017, with a 45-date tour of All Mouth, with tickets going on sale this Friday 3rd March 2017. Kicking off in September, this brand new tour will see Zerdin’s critically lauded act grace venues across the UK, finishing up with a three-night residency at London’s Leicester Square Theatre, from 24th-26th November.
Book now and secure your seat to see Paul Zerdin’s hilarious, award-winning and redefining comedy and puppetry work at a theatre near you this autumn. Aided and abetted by his band of sharp-tongued sidekicks, the precocious Baby, cantankerous OAP Albert, cheeky pre-teen Sam, and this time two brand new characters!
2016 was an extremely busy year for the acclaimed performer Zerdin, on both sides of the Atlantic. The comedian ended the year as part of a star-studded line up as Buttons in Cinderella, the London Palladium’s first pantomime in 30 years and a performance that saw high praise for Zerdin from the Radio Times (‘inspired casting – quick wit, rapport with the crowd and astonishing skills’), the Daily Mail (‘Zerdin is terrific’), The Guardian (‘an exceptionally good ventriloquist – labial control combined with easy charm’) and The Stage (‘Zerdin takes ventriloquism to new heights - his natural charm and puppet Sam’s cheekiness are a winning combination’).
Following a spring UK and US tour, 2016 also saw Zerdin head to The Las Vegas Strip for a headline residency at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.
When asked about his thoughts on returning to the UK for an autumn 2017 tour, Zerdin beamed: “2016 was such an exciting year for me and the boys – performing in Las Vegas and at venues like the London Palladium really is every entertainer’s dream. I cannot wait to get back to UK theatres later this year with Albert, Sam and Baby, who are set to be grumpier, bolder and more boisterous than ever. Hope to see you there!”
Zerdin is arguably the UK’s number one ventriloquist and made his TV debut in 1993 as the host of GMTV’s Rise and Shine. He then went on to win ITV’s The Big Big Talent Show, hosted by Jonathan Ross. Since then he has appeared on countless TV shows including The World Stands Up (Comedy Central), The Stand Up Show (BBC), Just for Laughs Montreal Comedy Festival, Comedy Rocks with Jason Manford (ITV1), Tonight at The London Palladium (ITV1), Michael McIntyre’s Big Christmas Show (BBC1) and three appearances at The Royal Variety Performance. Winning Series 10 of America’s Got Talent in September 2015, Zerdin and his sidekicks soon went viral on YouTube, receiving millions of views from around the world.
Tickets for All Mouthwill be on sale from 10am on Friday 3rd March 2017.
