The mysteries of animals take centre stage when popular comedian Sara Pascoe brings her new show to Northampton’s Royal & Derngate on Friday June 17.

The evening features a mixture of completely true stories about Tony Blair, Oedipus Rex and the wildlife of Lewisham, plus a load of stories that don’t sound true at all about Jason Donovan, Henry the Hoover and when God took over the tannoy in Sainsbury’s.

All animals evolved, but only humans evolved to the point of knowing they evolved. This troubling and confusing position is explored in a creative and honest way in a show about empathy and its limitations.

Sara has appeared on Live at the Apollo, Mock the Week, Have I Got News for You?, QI, Room 101, and 8 out of 10 Cats, and has been seen in recurring roles in shows including BBC’s The Thick of It and Twenty Twelve.

Her debut book Animal was published in May.

The show starts at 7.30pm.
