Where else can you see a potty-mouthed tweenager, a gangsta rap-loving octogenarian and real-life human beings bent to the whim of a mischievous ventriloquist and served up as trashy talk show fodder?

With more than 3 million YouTube hits, 3 sell-out Edinburgh festival shows, numerous Royal Variety Performance appearances and lashings of critical acclaim, ventriloquist Paul Zerdin is back for a storming new nationwide tour, visiting Ebbw vale's Beaufort Theatre on October 11.

The ultimate 21st century ventriloquist, Paul Zerdin has redefined the art for the Twitter age and continues to push the boundaries of puppetry. Serving up a show chock-full of colourful characters, shocks and surprises, side-splitting skits and some seriously naughty humour, Paul may have his hand in some cute and cuddly creations, but it might be best to leave the kids indoors for this one!

This stuffed and sassy stage show sees Zerdin at the centre of a twisted, puppet-based sitcom. Sprightly old timer Albert is raising hell as ever and ruining Paul’s love life with his hard of hearing ways; but is faithful sidekick and gobby pre-pubescent Sam looking to step out of his master’s shadow and branch out on his own? Britain’s Got Talent have come calling and Sam wants a solo bite of the showbiz apple! And then of course Baby is up to his usual antics.

Make sure you don’t miss one of the world’s leading ventriloquists showcase his cutting edge antics with a dash of magic, some Muppet impressions and a huge dollop of comedy in a town near you this autumn!
