In Your Face - UK Tour

Nina Conti has announced the dates of her largest scale UK tour to date – and in a spectacular feat of ventriloquism -  it will be entirely improvised every night.

Nina has won a British Comedy Award, stormed Live at the Apollo, Russell Howard’s Good News, Sunday Night at the Palladium, and made a BAFTA nominated film - all without even moving her lips.

Now Nina will use the unique skills and wit that she’s loved for to bring a new comedy experience to venues around the country. Strap into the mask as Nina gets in your face, creating a different show each night by plucking inspiration from the audience.

With the help of Monkey and a bag of tricks, truly anything can happen in this unmissable improvised adventure of hilarious witchery.

Clowning Around

Look out for Nina's new documentary, Clowning Around, on BBC4 on March 15 at 9pm. This follows her directorial debut, Her Master's Voice, which won a Grierson Award and a BAFTA nomination. In this new film Conti tells the story of her two year stint as a hospital clown.

Clowning Around follows Nina as she trains as a Giggle Doctor with Theodora Children’s Charity, beginning with her trying to find her clown persona. Devastated by the discovery that Monkey can only perform in hospitals if he can be boil-washed, Nina tries to go it alone with a red nose, a few balloon animals and some slightly disappointing magic tricks. Not to mention her professional snobbery rearing up as she discovers herself becoming a baby-voiced children's entertainer. Further problems emerge when she encounters sufferers from clown phobia...

Living with Monkey

Nina pledges to wear her monkey for 6 weeks, much to the detriment of her relationship with her husband Stan Stanley, and her father, actor Tom Conti, not to mention her daily life encounters!
