Adam Riches embodies Sean Bean at XS Malarkey, Amy Gledhill previews her brand new show at Cultplex and Girls Just Wanna Have Funny at Fierce Bar.

Adam Riches at XS Malarkey | Tue 26 Mar | 7.30pm | £6/3

“Dungeons & Bastards” is Adam Riches’ interactive medieval gameshow where he plays Sean Bean and the audience plays a series of mad games at Yorkshire’s Finest Thespian’s request. If any of that sounds like a laugh to you then the real thing will blow your mind. Riches is always hilarious and his larger-than-life Bean is a blustering treat with a wild take on the traditional gameshow to boot. Go if you can.
