This year's show takes a Spanish key.
July 04, 2011
This year's Celebrity Theatresports is embracing all things Spanish. It combines the talents of its more-famous guests with the skills of some Theatresports regulars, the regulars more versed in the event's everyday diet of improvisation and humour. The show promises to touch on the highs and lows of Spanish culture, while taking you on a tour of the highs and lows of comedy as well.
Modern Spain is a nuanced collection of regions, alternately collaborating and jostling with the State for autonomy. At Celebrity Theatresports, Peter Fitzsimmons will bring the sense of Castillian decorum, Rockwiz host Julia Zemiro some breezy Valencian style, Monica Trapaga looks to be a nation of Catalan cool and Adam Spencer may be the evening's Basque Country — spouting intelligent and ground-breaking ideas, in a venerable language few outsiders can understand. If this federation of talent isn't enough, comedians Claire Hooper and the Umbilical Brothers will also be on hand. As if that's not enough the show raises money for the charity CanTeen, which helps young people keep a handle on their youth while dealing with cancer. Will this be a nation united? No one will know until the night.
