Victor works for the Federation Against Copyright Theft, FACT. He is on a one-man crusade to save each and every one of you from the single greatest threat to this country’s security since the Triffid. DVD Piracy.
An extremely rare chance to see the very first solo show from Edinburgh Comedy Award Winner Adam Riches. In 2007, nobody came to see it. That’s why he’s brought it back, with a vengeance, for two nights only.
Adam says “Despite receiving some good reviews, Victor was a flop. It’s still a cracking hour though with all the raw, untamed energy of a first show, which you can never really replicate. If you’ve enjoyed any of my later work, and even if you haven’t, come see where it all began and experience this gateway drug into all my lunacy!”
