Who doesn’t love an interstellar black marketeer? Maybe it’s the slightly louche attitude? Maybe it’s the begrudging loyalty he shows towards the Doctor? Maybe it’s simply the fact that he’s very, very blue.
Making a profit from prophecies of doom, Dorium Maldovar, the ultimate blue meanie who suffered a one hundred percent reduction in robe costs at the hands of the Headless Monks, captured fans imaginations; thanks largely due to the irrepressibly human form of actor Simon Fisher-Becker – who due to popular demand, is set to return to the London stage once more in his one man show, My Dalek has a Puncture.
Yes, let your sentient money do the talking and pick up a ticket for the show billed as ‘a light hearted evening with a natural raconteur moving from one hilarious anecdote to another.’
Simon Fisher-Becker takes fans and interested, enthusiastic amateur actors through an entertaining, thought-provoking and hard fought look at peaks and troughs of trying to make a career in the business know as show.
Our own Simon Mills called the show ‘an evening of pure delight’ engaging both fans and wannabe actors with both humour and pathos:
“The stories of his life’s ups and downs were peppered with humour and some sadness… and some moments of real deep sadness, but his humour shone through and, very much in the same mould as Brian Blessed, the message of the evening is really, ‘never let the buggers grind you down! Stick with your passions, follow them through and don’t procrastinate.’”
You can watch the frankly mad promo trailer for the 2014 UK Tour, which takes in such places as Stevenage, Lewisham, and Epsom here.
Simon will perform at the LOST Theatre, London, a 181-seater off-West End Venue, six minutes walk from Stockwell Station, close to Central London, on August 3rd, 2014 – this is his only London date for the rest of this year.
Tickets will be £10 on the door or £11.25 incl. £1.25 phone/online booking fee from the Box Office on 0844 847 1680 or simply visit www.ticketweb.co.uk/event/116523.
