Jimmy Hogg: The Potato King

Jimmy Hogg

The multiple award-winning British comedian and storyteller returns to Vancouver with his sold-out smash hit The Potato King.


“Part Rik Mayall, Eric Idle and Eddie Izzard- hysterically tangential.” -Now Toronto *****

“The Potato King is also king of big laughs. Hogg is a fantastically engaging performer, sort of like if Ricky Gervais had more energy, and he weaves all his stories with brilliantly vivid descriptions and razor-sharp humour.” -Edmonton Journal. 

The Potato King, straddles the line between stand-up and storytelling. From meeting the girlfriend’s grandparents, to trying to fit in at a sex club, and exploring the online dating scene, the show never stops moving, constantly surprises, and revels in the hilarious absurdity of trying to find THE ONE.

“He’s got a wickedly rapid, bitterly sharp delivery.”- CBC *****

“Dickens would love this guy.”- Orlando Sentinel *****

“A master of the callback... Rik Mayall, whisked together with a lightness of touch reminiscent of a young Stewart Lee.” -The Beer Tent Reviews, Edmonton

“Telling really funny stories is what Hogg does best. If you want to know how to take ordinary life and turn it into theatre, this guy is a master.”- Orlando Sentinel *****
