Due to overwhelming public demand the much-loved come

dian Hal Cruttenden has

fter a 2-year hiatus from

touring, one of the

UK

w

entitled

Chubster

.

Th

is hotly anticipated show premieres at the Edinburgh Frin

ge

Festival this August in the prestigious Pleasance Court

yard One venue for the month

before touring from mid-September.

Rather touchingly, he asked his teenage daughters what

title would best sum him up.

They said

Chubster

. Hal

s now back on the 5:2 diet and onstage in a hilarious sh

ow

that not only touches on his usual moans about being a m

iddle-aged, middle class

father of fat-shaming teenagers but also introduces us

to new problems like his

struggles with IQ tests, political zealots and the trauma

of supporting the England

rugby team.

I can

t wait to get back on the road

says Hal.

I

m not actually that sociable naturally

but I love chatting to my comedy fans because we

ve immediately got something in

common. We both love me!
