Written and performed by Joe Sellman-Leava, and directed by Yaz Al-Shaater, FANBOY explores what it means to be a nerd in a love-hate letter to pop culture and nostalgia, asking why his generation is so attached to its childhood.
Joe himself 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 Star Wars and The Muppet Christmas Carol, but he’s started to sense something; a great disturbance within the fandom…
Joe will be performing FANBOY at The Tobacco Factory Theatre, Bristol, 7th – 8th September 2023. Tickets are available now on their website.
