WHERE'S BATMAN? MY LIFE AS A FAILED
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
Now let Seymour prepare you for the inevitable day when earth needs
saving. Become the Robin to his Batman.
'Breathtaking ... a surreal performance, he had the audience in the
palm of his hand from start to finish'
'Always fun to watch, wilfully odd yet compelling'
'Let the Mace man drive you to a state of madness.'
