America’s Got Talent Winner Paul Zerdin Confirms 45 Date

Paul Zerdin, the British comic who has mesmerized audiences around the world with his ventriloquism skills and edgy brand of comedy, and who took America’s Got Talent crown in 2015, announces a 45-date UK tour for Autumn 2021. Presented by ebp, Paul Zerdin - Hands Free, will see the puppet master himself, accompanied by his puppet playmates Sam, Baby and Albert performing at theatres around the UK.
Kicking off in Margate at the Theatre Royal on 19 September, Paul Zerdin - Hands Free will conclude in London on 22 November at the Duchess Theatre.

With the lines of reality blurred so effectively, it’s sometimes confusing even for Paul to know who’s actually running the show. To make sure he remains in charge, Paul will be bringing along his bodyguard Roger – who claims to be ex- CIA - to help him keep Sam, Albert and Baby in order as
well as a rather annoying urban Fox that has been following him around for some time now!

Sam, Albert, Baby, Roger the bodyguard and an urban fox have all survived the 2020 lockdown with Paul…. well nearly. They cannot wait to see you, so get ready to be involved. As well as Zerdin’s hilarious characters, Paul Zerdin - Hands Free, features Paul giving us a glimpse into his own reality, demonstrating what it’s actually like to be able to throw your voice in everyday situations where anything and everything can talk back!
Those pesky puppets – Sam, Baby and Albert will not let Paul have any peace! As for all of us, 2020 was different for Paul, but he kept himself busy writing and filming the hit TV series Sponge Weekly, for his YouTube channel, performed some live shows during the summer holidays and autumn half-term and then a brief return to the London Palladium at Christmas with Pantoland at the Palladium. During the rest of the time, he has been busy writing the new tour Paul Zerdin – Hands Free.

With masterful puppeteering, animatronic wizardry, and a blend of comedy - Paul Zerdin - Hands Free will serve to remind audiences that this talented ventriloquist/comedian is at the top of his game…. is also very funny – and we are all ready for a good laugh!!
Tickets, which are all priced at £20 (plus any theatre booking fees) are on sale from now, unless otherwise stated, so do not miss out on your chance to see the winner of America’s Got Talent, the star of London’s annual Palladium Panto and without doubt one of Britain’s finest entertainers at a theatre near you.

‘’The best ventriloquist Britain has discovered for many years...’’ The Stage

“If you think the words ‘brilliant and ‘ventriloquist’ have no place in the same sentence, go and see Paul Zerdin for some brutal re-education” Evening Standard

“Technically immaculate, it’s what he does with the slick talent that really sets him apart. His relationship with the characters has all the dramatic tension of a real-life double act” The Guardian
