How to Build A Lighthouse

Tales of belonging, a life that’s spanned the oceans and the lost art of forgiveness.

Critically acclaimed art-comedian and Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee Ben Target presents a tender show for the softhearted. A “spellbinding mix” (The Scotsman) of storytelling, origami tutorials and yacht rock anthems.

Fresh from a successful run at London's Yard Theatre we are delighted that Ben is bringing this wonderful show to Sheffield.

Praise for Ben Target’s work

“A true original and a legend in the making” The Guardian

“Imagine there was no Ben Target. The world would unquestionably be a darker, less interesting place.” Chortle

We are delighted to welcome Ben Target back to Tales of Whatever, he is one of our favourite comedians and the WiP version of this show that we saw in Edinburgh 2019 was already pretty special and we can't wait to share the finished article with you.

Support comes from comedian Helen Duff. We saw Helen at the Leicester Comedy Festival in February and we loved her silliness and irrepressible energy. She has graced the silver screens both small and large and is a critically acclaimed alumni of French master clown Philippe Gaulier.

As seen on BBC Three, BBC Two's 'The Mash Report', and alongside Will Ferrell in 'Holmes & Watson'.
