Comedian and celebrity King Of The Jungle Joe Pasquale is following in the footsteps of Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller by portraying the world’s best-known detective.
He is performing the lead role in Ha Ha Holmes!, the comedy spoof about Baker Street’s crime-fighter Sherlock Holmes, which comes to Norwich Theatre Royal in September.
It is described as a mystery but not as you know it as Holmes and his faithful sidekick Dr Watson set out on their most dangerous adventure yet trying to track down the scary Hound of the Baskervilles.
And along the way, the audience can expect plenty of gags and slapstick situations.
Starring opposite Joe will be the show’s creator Ben Langley, who lives near Diss and who was involved in the 2012 Cromer Pier summer season. He said the audience was unlikely to have seen a Sherlock Holmes production quite like Ha Ha Holmes!
• Ha Ha Holmes! is at Norwich Theatre Royal on September 22 at 7.30pm. Tickets £5.50-£20. For more information and to book tickets call 01603 630000 or visit www.theatreroyalnorwich.co.uk
