Boris: World King

This production ran in London in April 2016 and for its second Edinburgh Fringe season in 2016, as a co-production with KPS Productions presenting the show by Three’s Company and the play by Tom Crawshaw.

With his days as Mayor of London numbered, Britain’s favourite comedy politician casts himself in another leading role: the star of his own West End show. This gaffe-a-minute comedy sees the thinking man’s idiot wobbling on the brink of power.

This rollicking tale packs in pay-as-you-go bikes, wiff-waff, and an ancient Greek lecture for good measure. Before long, verbal slips, trips and divine interruption cue a new battle – for his very political existence.

Boris Johnson: politician, columnist, biographer, TV personality, eighth cousin of David Cameron, and one of GQ magazine’s Worst Dressed Men. And now, appearing nightly at the West End theatre closest to Downing Street!

Following a complete sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe, the smash hit satire by writer Tom Crawshaw and director Yaz Al-Shaater transfers to the West End for just four weeks. Starring David Benson as Boris Johnson (One Man Two Guvnors; Fringe First award-winning Think No Evil Of Us and Lockerbie: Unfinished Business).

★★★★“Equal parts flourish and focus, it nails both Johnson’s blustery charm and the steely way he uses it” 
The Times

★★★★ Very amusing show with a bite in its tail.”
Evening Standard

★★★★“Tom Crawshaw’s fine entertainment deserves to be seen by everyone.”
