In this episode we managed to grab the hilarious Dave Hearn for a chat during rehearsals for The Time Machine!

We speak about his beginnings in comedy, specifically learning about improvisation, and of course about the world-famous theatre company he co-founded, Mischief Theatre, who are known for shows like The Play that Goes Wrong (West End/Broadway) and The Goes Wrong Show (BBC1).

Dave lets us in on some inside secrets of filming The Goes Wrong Show and how performing in a theatre compares to a TV set with a studio audience.

We talk about The Time Machinewhich opens with us at the New Wolsey Theatre, why he chose to take on this role, and why you should come to see this extraordinary show…

Thank you to Dave for giving up his time to talk to us, and we wish the whole company the best for the rest of their rehearsals, as well as the tour

The Time Machine runs from Thu 23 Feb – Sat 4 Mar 2023 at the New Wolsey Theatre, Ipswich.
