Comedian Sean Hughes is set to bring his Penguins show to Hertford.

Penguins are not normally spotted in Hertfordshire.

But comedian Sean Hughes will be bringing his new show, Penguins, to Hertford Theatre later this month.

The award-winning master of storytelling and stand-up will be appearing at The Wash venue on Saturday, February 15 at 8pm.

Following a critically acclaimed run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival last year, the former Never Mind The Buzzcocks team captain is back on the road.

Sean, who has also appeared in Coronation Street and Alan Parker film The Commitments, is at his honest and hilarious best in Penguins, a poignant and moving theatrical comedy piece, which was named Best Comedy Show at the Herald Angels Awards 2013.

It is packed full of surprises, hidden twists and recurring themes as Sean takes us back to his Dublin upbringing, exploring the utter awkwardness of teenage life, weaving in his family, his school days, the business of friendship and tying it all in to the present.

Penguins is a multi-layered comedy show that asks what shapes a man’s life.

But what does it have to do with penguins? You will have to pop along to find out.

Tickets for Sean Hughes: Penguins at Hertford Theatre cost £15.
