Ben Van der Velde: Fablemaker Cancelled
Jump into an improvised comedy adventure with Ben as he raids the library of his fantastical imagination to create thrillers, romances, ghost stories and more original freewheeling tales that have never been told before and never will be again.
Continuing in the joyous tradition of fellow Geordie Ross Noble, this year Ben takes his crowd work to a whole new level, as he improvises a brand-new story each night. Using audience members as characters he creates a fable that often looks and sounds like a lost Goon Show made flesh. With nothing to rely on but his wits and the punters in front of him, this is edge of your seat comedy without a safety net. Previous stories that have appeared out of nowhere to entertain the audience include: The Lost Treasure of Bigfoot, The Fable of the Three Covens & Sam the Godslayer and The Betrayal of the Billionaire Fact-checker.
