Richard Gadd: Monkey See Monkey Do

RICHARD GADD brings one of the most memorable, genre-busting performances in years with the undoubted hit show of the 2016 Edinburgh Festival Fringe. A stand-up routine that goes to the depths of who he is – and what it means to be a Man.

Rightly hailed as ‘the comedy show that defined 2016’ by The Guardian, and ‘one of the top ten comedy shows of the year’ by The Times. Following a sell-out, two-month run in London’s West End, Gadd heads out on tour.

Winner: Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Show 2016 | Nominee: Total Theatre Award 2016


‘This is comedy-as-personal-catharsis taken to a whole new level – his charisma and commitment to his art is extraordinary’
The Telegraph

‘Raw, intense and heartfelt. This show marks Gadd out as a mercurial talent’
The Independent

‘Knocking over genre barriers and artistic borders it is compelling and captivating’
Evening Standard

‘A wildly inventive hour’
The Times

‘The rawness of the story, the overwhelming experience of the multimedia presentation, and Gadd’s exceptional performance mean this is a show that will stay with you’
