CHRIS BETTS: BEWILDERBEEST
Betts is back, but he’s got a problem. What do you do when you can’t trust the law, the elderly or even yourself? Join him for a hilarious dissemination of human nature, featuring crooked cops and superstitious children. This occasionally edgy but always hysterical Canadian jokesmith with a gift for ‘drolly original reasoning’ and ‘zinging turn of phrase’ (Scotsman) is a must-see.
“Betts’s rigorous curiosity and lively imagination make him one of the most exciting acts around.” Daily Telegraph
