Joe Pasquale Joins Cast Of HA HA HOLMES! For UK Tour, Starting Sept 2013
There's a beast on the moors, a crime to be solved, and with the Ha Ha team on the case - what can go right?!
You'd be absolutely barking mad to miss this pipe-smoking new show from theatre's funniest parodists as Holmes and Watson embark on their most dangerous adventure yet ... hunting down The Hound of The Baskervilles.
It's elementary! It's also downright hilarious as comedic National Treasure and Dancing on Ice star Joe Pasquale takes on the role of Sherlock Holmes. As one of the UK's top stand-ups Joe brings mirthful merriness to the proceeding, but will he be skating on thin ice?
With writer Ben Langley as Doctor Watson and Andrew Fettes as everyone else, this sure-fire wonderfully ridiculous show is well worth an investigation.
Has the beast bitten off more than he can chew when confronted by our crime stopping team? Will Holmes find his deerstalker and will the deer be happy when he does? Stick some shag in your pipe and visit 221b Baker Street for the most gripping comic caper of the age!
Swapping spandex for Sherlock's famous deerstalker is Joe Pasquale who, having conquered the nation's hearts to be crowned Celebrity King of the Jungle in 2004's I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here returns to UK screens this January to battle it out in ITV's ratings-winner, Dancing on Ice. Our high achieving hero joins another Jamie Wilson production. Our very own action man is a trained pilot, charity marathon runner, Geoscience degree studier and all round good egg - and this week gets set to star in another ITV ratings winner, Dancing On Ice. After Pamela Anderson's surprise exit last week, we wish him the best of luck and hope to see him skate to success this spring.
Writer Ben Langley has worked in London's Covent Garden as a street performer for the last seventeen years, he won The Bristol Harbour Festival Street Performer of the Year award performing his one man show and has supported Paul Zerdin in his'Sponge Fest' tour. Andrew Fettes is, along with Ben, co-founder of the Ha Ha Boys comedy team, writing and touring the Ha Ha series of theatre shows since 2007. Carole Todd (Dreamboats and Petticoats, Soul Sister, Hello Dolly!) acts as Assistant Director and Choreographer and Griff Johnson is Composer and Musical Supervisor.
