Billy Mitchell's VILLAIN: DEBLANKS to Make Star-Studded London Debut

After three years of benefit performances in New York, Los Angeles and regional theaters, audience-favorite Villain: DeBlanks is bringing its money-raising shenanigans to London in support of the Make A Difference Trust (MAD) on September 3rd.

This one-night-only event will feature a cast West End luminaries, including Glynis Barber (Beautiful - the Carol King musical, Dempsey & Makepeace), two-time Oliver winner David Bedella (In The Heights, Jerry Springer the Opera), Harriet Thorpe (Absolutely Fabulous, Calendar Girls), Don Gallagher (Disney's Alladin, Priscilla Queen of the Desert), Cherrelle Skeete (pictured, originated Rose Granger-Weasley in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child), and Leon Lopez (EastEnders, Tut).

All proceeds from the event will benefit TheatreMAD, "the ongoing response by the UK theatre industry to HIV and AIDS."

A Time Out NY Critics' Pick written by Billy Mitchell, Villain: DeBlanks is the uproarious improvisational comedy where the cast says words you put in their mouths. The audience provides nouns, adjectives, verbs, etc. (the wilder, the better), and the actors provide the laughs-uncensored and unrehearsed-as they enact the story of Philip DeBlanks' untimely demise. It's "Clue" meets adult "Mad Libs," and it's never the same show twice.

So grab a thesaurus and a few friends, and come laugh your (BODY PART)_____ off!

This benefit performance made possible through a grant from AE Ventures Foundation. Presented by the West End Cabaret Company in association with MAD Trust.

Villain: DeBlanks will perform at Brasserie Zédel, 20 Sherwood Street, Soho, London W1F 7ED on Sunday 3 September at 9:15pm. Tickets £25. Call 020 7734 4888 or visit For more information, visit
