Comedy ventriloquist, Nina Conti, brings new dating show to the Tyne Theatre
Saturday 6th November 2021
Coming up at the Tyne Theatre and Opera House, the queen of ventriloquism,Nina Conti, returns to their stage pioneering a new dating show on Saturday 6th November 2021.
Following a four-year absence, the British Comedy Award winner returns like Cilla Black with masks. Derailed. Not so much a Blind Date as a re-voiced one. There is no promise that true love will be found but a firm guarantee that big laughs will be had.
Nina says: “Before this Armageddon hit, I was developing a dating show where I would connive for audience members to fall in love wearing masks. Post COVID, I can’t think of anything more fitting. I think we all need to get in a room together and laugh our heads off, and if the subject can be love, so much the better.”
Nina has stormed ‘Live at the Apollo’, ‘QI’, ‘Russell Howard’s Good News’ and‘Sunday Night at the Palladium’– all without moving her lips. In 2012 she fronted two documentaries for BBC4 and in 2013 she appeared in Christopher Guest’s HBO series ‘Family Tree’ alongside Chris O’Dowd.More recently Nina was a runner-up on ‘The World’s Best’, a US major talent show on NBC; produced an improvised web series, ‘In Therapy’ on YouTube, which has amassed over 1.5 million views since 2018; and joined forces with award winning Shenoah Allen (The Pajama Men) to make the character comedy podcast, ‘Richard & Greta’, unqualified experts who explain how to get the most, or too much, out of your partner.
