Joe has always been a nerd. In his teens, he hid it. In his twenties, he owned it. Now in his thirties, Joe is still obsessed with Nintendo, Star Wars, and A Muppets Christmas Carol. But he’s started to notice something about the way certain fans are behaving – something unsettling. When Joe finds himself alone, in his old room, sorting through his old things, he finds an old video tape, long forgotten. He dusts off the VCR, presses play…and something strange starts to happen!
Fanboy is a love-hate letter to pop culture and nostalgia. Award-winning writer-performer Joe Sellman-Leava (Fringe First, Labels 2015) explores our relationship to our past and future selves and asks why his generation is so obsessed with its childhood.
Combining epic storytelling, razor-sharp impressions and a dose of theatrical magic, Fanboy comes to the Kenton Theatre for its final preview before its world premiere at Edinburgh Festival Fringe!
