Stand-up/magician Nathan Penlington presents Uri & Me – a show that looks behind the spoonbending cultural icon to reveal the subtle, complex, and caring nature that has created a boardgame, a folding bike, a range of porcelain plates, over fourteen books, a line of jewellery produced exclusively for QVC, a collection of psychically energised teddy bears, and a pop album. Uri claims telepathy, clairvoyance, ESP, dowsing for oil, bending metal are real – Uri & Me will make those things real for you too.

Nathan Penlington seamlessly fuses poetry, comedy, storytelling, and award winning magic with writing that is intelligent, accessible and entertaining to create a unique form of literary cabaret. He has performed his work on BBC Radio 1, Radio 3 and Radio 4. He performs at venues and festivals across the UK, Europe and the USA, and has shared stages with the likes of John Cooper Clarke, Ricky Gervais and Stewart Lee.

'A natural performer, witty, inventive, stylish and original' - Robert Newman
'Nathan Penlington's fusion of wit, storytelling and visuals are garnering critics' plaudits and attention' - Time Out

Support on the night - Byron Vincent
From surreal punk rock disquisition about the socialist inclinations of the Smurfs to astutely acerbic examinations of the fraying tapestry of British culture. Byron Vincent’s oratory fuses comedy, poetry and doe eyed bewilderment to create a unique and entertaining spoken word experience. Catch him before the national tour.
