  SEYMOUR MACE
WHERE'S BATMAN? MY LIFE AS A FAILED SUPERHERO

The loveable oddball tackles the legends in lycra.

Ever since Batman consistently failed to show up throughout his childhood, Seymour Mace has been obsessed with being a superhero. Well, who wouldn't want to be a hero and be super as well?

One of Britain's most offbeat and disarmingly surreal talents, Seymour is a regular headliner at comedy clubs across the country.

Now, witness Seymour as he attempts his own fiendish experiment- to rekindle the flame of belief that you, yes you, could be bitten by a radioactive creature or suffer an unimaginable personal tragedy that will convert you into a single minded crime fighting saviour.

Using his recently rediscovered stash of comic books, Seymour will give a potted history of superhero legends Thor to The Hulk, explain the difference between a cool superhero and an arsehole and explore what Spidey gets up to on his day off. Find out which superheroes are in the closet and why simply holding a Monkey stick does not make you a martial artist.

Audience members are encouraged to bring drawings of their very own superhero creations which, in true Tony Hart style, will be displayed in the on-stage gallery. A fabulous prize will be awarded daily to the lycra-clad creation that wins the popular vote.

Seymour is best known for playing twins Craig and Steve in BBC 3's cult sitcom Ideal alongside Johnny Vegas, meaning he is now unable to walk down the street without being recognised by the nation's stoners.

Now let Seymour prepare you for the inevitable day when earth needs saving. Become the Robin to his Batman.
