Comedy: Kriss Foster and Rob Auton

The Dukes, Lancaster LA1 1QE

Comedy at The Dukes

Kriss Foster is a man from Lancaster who sees the marvellous in the mundane. Songs and stories about puffins, Goldfish pencils, Scrabble… and many, many mugs.

A show for anyone who has, or has had, hair and hairs.

Award-winning stand-up comedian and poet Rob Auton (Dave’s Funniest Joke Of The Fringe award-winner, Glastonbury’s Poet In Residence) returns with another heart-felt and offbeat comedy/theatre/spoken word show that explores hair and hairs.

Rob casts an introspective eye over the world of hair, underpinned by leaving his head hair and beard to their own devices until he has performed The Hair Show for the final time. Join Rob as he explores the importance of appearance and how people react to someone who looks like he has checked out.

For the past six years Rob has used his command of words and distinctive unconventional humour to explore seemingly mundane subjects: sleep, water, faces, the sky and the colour yellow. These shows have given rise to a cult status at the Edinburgh Fringe. His unique world view has been acknowledged through being shortlisted for the prestigious Spoken Word Award by the Arts Foundation, receiving a Best Short Film nomination for the The Peamaster, which he co-wrote and starred in, at the Milan Film Festival.
