Norfolk comedian Karl Minns will be bringing one of his most popular characters back as the opening act for Interlude in Norwich, which runs for six weeks in a big top tent.

Karl Minns, who is also one half of comedy duo The Nimmo Twins with Owen Evans, will play much-loved mum She Go in his latest solo show and it runs from August 10 to 16.

She Go Does It In A Tent…With Friends will look at the region’s weird and wonderful news stories over the last year, including Ipswich being voted the 14th best tourist destination in the UK.

The second half of the show, which has no interval due to social distancing, will feature other Nimmo Twins characters such as Billy Boy and The Vicar.

Mr Minns said: “Most people in the arts weren’t expecting to be performing this year so it is was a real surprise and thrill when I got asked to do Interlude.

“Norfolk audiences have been fantastic over the last 24 years and they are good at laughing at themselves.”

Interlude is a collaboration between Norwich Theatre and circus company Lost in Translation and features six weeks of live performances, running until Sunday, September 20 with seating in bubbles of two to six.
