What's On 

The Ice Hole 768x768.jpg

After four recent sold-out shows, with standing ovations every night, the outrageous comedy sensation is back for one special weekend at Theatre by QE2 – with shows on Friday, July 5th, and Saturday, July 6th.
This is a must-see event for theatre enthusiasts, in any language - and lovers of creative expression. Audiences in Dubai don’t often see theatre like this -a play filled with creativity and cardboard artistry.
Described as a “cardboard comedy” the story of the play revolves around a man in a three-piece suit fishing in the plains of the Great North when an accidental encounter with a mermaid changes his destiny. He embarks on an enigmatic and crazy journey narrated - with cardboard!
Originally created by top French comedians, Pierre Guillois and Olivier Martin-Salvan, the 2022 Moliere Award-winning show was a smash hit at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2023 where it received glowing 5-star reviews and played to sold-out audiences.
“The Ice Hole – A Cardboard Comedy” is now brought to life in Dubai by popular comedians and actors Sadiq Saboowala and Patrick Albrecht, two-time winners of the local Short + Sweet Dubai Theatre Festival.

                       July 5th (8pm)

Viral sensation and all-round great guy Vittorio Angelone is one of comedy’s fastest-rising stars. Having started comedy in 2018 he has already cultivated a huge online following from stand-up clips and podcasts, regularly amassing millions of views on various platforms.

 

As well as co-hosting Mike & Vittorio’s Guide to Parenting alongside fellow comedian Mike Rice, he is a regular guest on the Have A Word Podcast and released his first comedy special in September 2023.

 

Following his 5-star, sold-out, award-nominated debut (which solved literally every problem in the world) his new show looks inward to find out who exactly he thinks he is.

 

As seen on the internet unless your algorithm hasn’t blessed you thusly.

The Showing Off Must Go On
Ardal is conflicted. Where he comes from there is nothing worse than showing off. It’s right up there with arson or murder. Yet he shows off as a way of life. Three questions. Why? Why? Why? 
But just when he thought he’d made sense of the world, when he’d finally found wisdom and peace, the world went mad again, fell off its axis. And you can’t just stand idly by.
In an age of raging populism, angry identity politics, the end of truth, the collapsing middle ground, and peak avocado, Ardal, an otherwise gentle voice of reason is forced to re-join the fray. Terrified of being on the wrong side of history and keen to prove his age, race, gender and class don’t necessarily define him as a person, he turns to comedy, comedy as ever being the best, most therapeutic emergency response to extreme events there is. 
Ardal O’Hanlon, star of such shows as Father Ted and Death in Paradise, and recently seen in Taskmaster and Would I Lie to You, continues to tour his acclaimed (and very silly) live show worldwide.

Jake Lambert is going on his first national tour. Described as "A joke machine" by The Telegraph, the show will see the comedian talk about trying to navigate his way through everyday life, why he has a fear of being normal, and asking why we all feel the need to ask strangers what breed their dogs are.


It seems the perfect time for his first tour too; his online videos have gained over 150million views, he has been supporting Michael McIntyre on his worldwide tour and he will be appearing on the next series of Live at the Apollo.

Produced by GME Events.
