AWARD-winning funny man Sean Hughes comes to Bridgwater Arts Centre this Friday (February 21) with his newest show ‘Penguins’.

It’s already earned him the Herald’s Angels accolade for Best Comedy Show.

At 48, Sean has already done a lot with his time and calls himself an ‘old timer’.

Not only did he serve as a team captain on BBC music quiz Never Mind The Buzzcocks for ten series, but he’s also appeared on television shows including Coronation Street and children’s series Rubbadubbers.

His brand of comedy is more on the interaction side of things than the practised “gag reel” he says.

In Penguins, he takes the audience through his adolescence in Dublin, his dad’s padding, school days and the weird things social conventions make us do.

Beware if you’re in this week’s Mercury, he told the paper last week that he likes to go through the local paper in the opening of his show.

Tickets cost £15 or £10 for concessions. “All I want people to do is buy one and come along,” says Sean.

The show starts at 8pm.
