An improvised comedy show like no other, Austentatious features a cast of comic performers conjuring a brand-new “lost” Jane Austen novel from the ether based only on audience title suggestions, with previous examples including “Sixth Sense And Sensibility”, “Double 0 Darcy” and “Mansfield Shark”. No two performances are ever alike, and the whole thing is performed in full costume with live musical accompaniment. Even if you don’t go in for Austen there are jokes aplenty to be had, and if you’re a fan then there’s even more in there for you to enjoy.

Austentatious is at The Y on Saturday 20th October.

Dan Wallbank has been floating around the Leicester comedy scene for five years and the music scene for ten. He's the founder of Comedy and Cocktails at Manhattan34, host of the Firebug Pop Quiz and creator of Instant Nostalgia, the podcast that reviews itself.
