    Alex Horne: Monsieur Butterfly

    Nominated for Best Show in the 2014 Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Awards, Alex Horne brings his curious contraption to Chipping Norton Theatre. Remember that board game Mousetrap? In this unprecedented comedy experience, you can watch award winning comedian (and three time Countdown champion) Alex Horne attempt something similar. Stupidly ambitious, logistically problematic, potentially dangerous, this is the show Alex has wanted to make for a decade. Finally he will be Monsieur Butterfly. One flap of his delicate wings and mayhem will prevail. Suitable for ages 14+
