In 2003, Lance Armstrong won his 5th Tour de France title, and a young boy in West Yorkshire believed in him. Now a character comedian, the boy – played by Kieran Hodgson – sets out on tour with a heartfelt and hilarious story of growing up, betrayal by professional athletes, and redemption.
‘Lance’ was nominated for Best Show at the Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Awards in 2015, was The Guardian’s Number One Comedy Show of 2015, and also had a sell-out five-week run in London’s West End.
‘Lance’ will be on at the MCT at Alleyn’s on Thursday 16th June at 8pm. Tickets £10 (£8 concession) available from www.mctalleyns.org.uk or by calling the box office on 020 8557 1541.
Kieran starred in BBC2’s We’re Doomed! The Dad’s Army Story this Christmas, and featured in BBC2’s Count Arthur Strong and the movie Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa.
‘An absolute gem of a comedy show – about teenage cycling, sullied dreams and migrating from the north. Every line of his script is wired for laughter’
