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.

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.
