Forget Hammer Time, it’s Sausage Time!

IT HAS been six years since the self-styled, floppy-collared loon that is Harry Hill last hit the road for a proper tour.

So his current 40-date slog, Sausage Time is a welcome return to live comedy, and it rolls into Milton Keynes Theatre this Friday evening.

Speaking to GO! earlier this month, Harry said: “It’s a long time to have been away from it...It’s a bit like falling back in love with a girlfriend!”

His live show promises incontrovertible proof that God exists – this is quite a feat from the well-loved personality who brought us prime time Saturday evening viewing in the guise of TV Burp.

Harry’s unique take on the week’s television spawned catchphrases, extreme fondness for the idea of a scrap (“...there’s only one way to find out....fiiiiigggghhht!”)and made stars out of knitted toys.

Setting his sights on all new material for this live show Harry revealed that even he does sometimes get things wrong.

“It does happen, it’s inevitable, unless you play it safe,” he admits.

Still, Harry is looking forward to bringing Sausage Time to the new city.

Complete with stand-up, visual comedy, pure silliness and a finale playing tribute to the Olympic opening ceremony, it’s a sure-fire face-achingly funny show that awaits ticket-holders.

Catch Harry (and that 20 foot sausage...) on Friday (and Saturday) at 7.30pm.

Raising the roof of the theatre will be a piece of cake for The Yamato Drummers of Japan on Sunday when they stage their thrilling performance of Japanese Taiko drumming.

This visually spectacular and highly entertaining show combines the sheer physical strength of the drummers with the beauty of powerful music.

For another spectacular show look no further than That’ll Be The Day as the nation’s favourite rock ‘n’ roll walk down memory lane returns by popular demand on Monday.

Featuring an all new line-up of knock-out hits from the 60s and 70s, this variety show mixes the old-school music with new zany comedy routines.

This one-night only production is living proof that rock ‘n’ roll will neverlay down quietly.

Something else that will live forever is our love of Boogie Nights.

The 70s musical is back on the road in a remixed concert version, ready to bring the party of a lifetime to audiences in MK next Tuesday and Wednesday evening.

Head over to ‘Boogie Wonderland’ but ‘Don’t Go Breaking My Heart’ when the stars come out for this production.

The Osmond Brothers – Merrill, Jimmy and Jay, appear in their first ever musical together alongside singer and stage star Gareth Gates, former Eastender Louisa Lytton, plus X-Factor faces Andy Abraham and Chico.

Shane Richie Junior is on board too.

They will be boarding the ‘Love Train’ ready to ‘Play That Funky Music’ for two nights only, joined by a wider cast of 15 singers, dancers and musicians.
