Important information:

This show contains audience interaction.

This is the story of a humble spud Charlotte, who dreams of becoming a stand-up comedian. But how does a couch potato grow to become a golden wonder?

Potatohead is "totally silly but also sneakily smart" ( with elements of kitsch cabaret and old-school entertainment. This original new writing blends surrealist comedy and traditional theatre for a highly entertaining and joyful performance.

"Potatohead is as gloriously bonkers as it sounds. Freddie Hayes, our solo performer and Spud puppeteer fully commits to her endeavour with an endearing self-awareness of just how ridiculous it all is."
