America’s Got Talent Ventriloquist Sensation Paul Zerdin Comes to Newcastle in 2022
Friday 15thApril 2022
The Tyne Theatre and Opera House have announced that Paul Zerdin and everyone’s favourite puppets will be bringing their new show Hands Free to the Theatre on Friday 15th April 2022.
Londoner Paul Zerdin captivated audiences with his America’s Got Talent audition in 2015, going on to win the show and land a headlining Las Vegas residency. In the company of Sam, Albert, Baby, Roger the bodyguard and an urban fox—the award-winning ventriloquist will show you just how sharp tongued soft, felt puppets can really be.
Paul was just 10 years old when a family friend made him a puppet theatre. His TV debut came at 17 with BBC1’s children’s sitcom Tricky Business, with his next break being a feature on GMTV’s morning show Rise And Shine, where he unveiled his puppet character Sam for the first time. It was Jonathan Ross’s The Big Big Talent Show that launched Paul onto scores of UK TV shows including Tonight At The London Palladium, You Bet, The Generation Game and A Royal Gala for The Prince’s Trust. In 2000, he made his Edinburgh fringe debut. With the words of Ray Allen—legendary ventriloquist—for guidance, the hours spent rehearsing in front of the mirror as a child have taken Paul to audiences across the globe. A natural, born performer, this is a man with humour running through his veins.
Forget everything you thought you knew about puppets. Paul’s brand of ventriloquism takes an “old-fashioned” genre, shakes up expectations and places his act in a league of its own. As well as his hilarious characters ‘Hands Free’ features Paul giving us a glimpse into his own world showing us what it’s like to be able to throw your voice in everyday situations where anything and everything can talk back!
Theatre Director Joanne Johnson has said “Paul is just hilarious; I’ve never seen an act quite like it—I was completely mesmerised. Hands Free will be a real sensation; if you’re thinking of getting tickets, book now to avoid disappointment!”
