Alex Horne’s “Monsieur Butterfly” is not a full comedy show but is a piece of biographical theatre with comedic elements. Throughout the journey of Horne building a giant contraption live on stage, you’ll go will go through a journey with him explaining each different compartment to the piece of engineering on stage, each with it’s own story and/or gag.

As a veteran of the Fringe, Alex Horne really does know what he is doing, the show is constructed perfectly and the comedic timing is spot on. All the past outings have felt complete and flowed brilliant as a conceptual show, this is not an exception, not falling into the trap of generic stand-up comedy by any stretch

Every year Alex Horne brings something different to the table and he did not disappoint this year! The audience interaction is brilliant as ever with his witty remarks throughout the show as always, keeping everyone on their toes.

You can catch Alex Horne’s “Monsieur Butterfly” at the Pleasance Courtyard at 20:10 (21:10) until Sunday 24th August, you can purchase tickets here.
