Colin Hoult presents a funny and existential show at The Stand Comedy Club in Newcastle on Thursday 29th September, with the long-awaited return of the character Anna Mann. Though perhaps not for long, as the show is themed around her death!

Anna Mann is a critically acclaimed actress and singer, as well as a welder, just in case a career change is called for. After a hiatus of five years, she takes to the stage to tell the tale of her life, from the beginning until the bitter end, which is where this show is set.

Expect one hour of discussion about life, death and all of the pieces that fill the space inbetween, Anna Mann is not only designed for hilarity but also for self-reflection. This fantastical character exists to be incredibly real for the entire audience for the show’s duration. After working on Ricky Gervais’ hit TV show After Life, it’s easy to see how Colin Hoult has blended the lines of the morbid and the comedic.

Join him as Anna Mann to learn about her life story in depth, as well as reflect a little bit about your own. Who says that introspection and laughter don’t go together?

Colin Hoult: The Death of Anna Mann is at The Stand, Newcastle on Thursday 29th September.
