JULIO TORRES: MY FAVOURITE SHAPES
August 6-11 2018
London W1D 3NE
In this multi-media comedy show, SNL staff writer Julio Torres guides a camera through his favourite shapes which include a plexi-glass square, a triangle, a self-conscious Faberge egg who wonders if he’s too much and a Ferrero Rocher wrapper that reminds him of Melania Trump. Julio’s various favourite objects serve as a jumping point for fantastical stories, bizarre anecdotes and jokes.
Julio Torres is a New York City comedian originally from El Salvador. Audiences will be most familiar with his dark and much-heralded viral Saturday Night Live sketches and his unique stand-up has been featured on Late Night With Seth Myers and The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon.
My Favourite Shapes was the underground hit of Edinburgh Fringe 2017 with comedians and audiences flocking to see this unusual act in their droves. Don’t miss his London debut.
