The true story of one man’s attempt to change the world through stand-up comedy is back at the festival for its fourth consecutive year, for just one farewell performance.

In this stunning solo show, the greatest comedian ever returns from the dead for one more show, revealing how to end the war on terror, why drugs are better than alcohol, and what the Bush family has done for porn.

The production has already played three sell-out seasons at the Edinburgh festival, and three sell-out West End seasons.

“An absolutely must-see show. Slight Return is a triumph of mimicry, research and writing.”
**** The Independent

“Achieves the impossible: a brave idea that shouldn’t work. But it does.”
Time Out

“Unimaginably brilliant - a comedy blinder. Beautiful, heavy-hitting, bad boy stuff... and it is almost painfully good. It is almost painfully Hicks.”
**** The Scotsman

“Terrific. Chas Early gives this rollicking reincarnation integrity and wit.”
