Though his career might have skyrocketed with dazzling effect recently (due to his recurring role on TVs Man Down and his phenomenal tour de force performance on Taskmaster, which has gone down as a permanent fan favourite), Mike Wozniak has been an eccentric and vibrant presence in the comedy circuit for over a decade now.

The moustachioed actor and writer has amassed quite the reputation for his experimental and subversive takes on standup that delves into the surreal and the theatrical. His latest escapade, his first tour since Taskmaster, is the largely sold out Zusa. The show details the true story of Wozniak’s Great Aunt as she travels from Poland to Luton with a war swelling up behind her, nipping at her heels.

The comic is known for his lavish charisma, outlandish flare over the English language and cutting improvisations. Zusa offers an opportunity to witness all three traits demonstrated beautifully by a masterful storyteller who is moments away from being one of the comedy greats. With the delicate charm of the comedian springing off in each and every direction, Mike’s set is bound to be a hilarious and intriguing routine tackling taboos and adding in the heart and soul of a family tale.

Mike Wozniak arrives at The Stand, Newcastle on Thursday 20th April.
