Nina Conti

BAFTA nominated and British Comedy Award-winning ventriloquist Nina Conti brings her new show In Your Face to the Corn Exchange this month for a dose of her astonishing, voice-throwing, mask-wearing shtick on 17 November.

With plenty of improv and audience interaction, no two shows are the same when Conti – whom The Telegraph describe as “gut-bustingly funny” – is in the driving seat. Expect two things: the unexpected, and to laugh your head off. Tickets are £22.75.
