Luke Kempner: Macho Macho Man *

Tickets for the original date are valid for the new one. Alternatively, refunds are available from the Box Office.

Stand-up comedian and impressionist Luke Kempner is set to take his new show Macho Macho Man on the road in early 2022. This follows his previous show, House of Faces, which sold out at the Edinburgh Fringe and then toured nationwide throughout 2019.

Luke is a Macho Macho Man. He came up with the title whilst listening to his Les Mis Album for the 28,000th time. In this brand-new show Luke tries to work out what masculinity really means, with stand-up and impressions from Ru Paul to Piers Morgan and Joe Wicks to Bojo.

Everyone at Downton will give Luke advice on becoming a first-time parent and Ted Hastings, Steve Arnott and the rest of AC-12 will help Luke find out who in his friendship group DIDN’T GET A ROUND IN. Louis Theroux will even take Luke through Man-School. Luke struggles to fit in, between turning up to a dance audition in football boots to falling in love with a “cool guy” that sits in the row in front of him at the football. Will Luke ever become the Macho Macho Man he dreams of?

Luke said, ‘I can’t wait to get out of my house! It’s quite scary for my wife to come downstairs and see me dressed as Boris Johnson or Chloe from Love Island so it will be welcome break for her.’

Luke has quickly established himself as the UK’s hottest new impressionist for the millennial comedy generation with his contemporary take on pop culture mimicry, amassing over 10 million views online, through his viral sketch videos ‘Alternative Love Island’ and ‘Alternative Game of Thrones.’

2021 has already seen Luke make appearances on The Last Leg (Channel 4) and ITV2’s Stand-Up Sketch Show and Love Island Aftersun. This follows a busy 2020 for Luke, where he appeared on It Takes Two (BBC2), Celebrity Karaoke Club (ITV2), and became a regular contributor/presenter on Steph’s Packed Lunch (Channel4).

All tickets £15.
Doors open 7.30pm, show starts 8pm.
