Due to overwhelming public demand the much-loved comedian Hal Cruttenden has extended his UK tour into 2019 with 22 extra dates! After a 2-year hiatus from touring, one of the UK’s most popular TV and live comedian is back with a new show entitled ‘Chubster’. This hotly anticipated show premieres at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival this August in the prestigious Pleasance Courtyard One venue for the month before touring from mid-September.
Rather touchingly, he asked his teenage daughters what title would best sum him up. They said ‘Chubster’. Hal’s now back on the 5:2 diet and onstage in a hilarious show that not only touches on his usual moans about being a middle-aged, middle class father of fat-shaming teenagers but also introduces us to new problems like his struggles with IQ tests, political zealots and the trauma of supporting the England rugby team.
“I can’t wait to get back on the road” says Hal. “I’m not actually that sociable naturally but I love chatting to my comedy fans because we’ve immediately got something in common. We both love me!”
