Harry Hill's Experiments In Entertainment (Part 2.5) on board Cutty Sark

If you haven't seen Harry Hill live, you haven't experienced him. More wild, more uncensored and a whole lot more visceral than on TV.

About the event

Jump aboard the comedy ship and immerse yourself in the sickly, warm goo of Harry Hill's comedy as this show unfolds right in front of your eyes.

Expect his trademark mash-up of styles and substances, from Vaudeville schtick gone wrong to crooning and lo-fi puppetry. Come and get your ribs tickled by the renegade master.
