ONE of the world’s most acclaimed ventriloquists is set to stop off in Skegness for the second time this summer when he performs at the Embassy Theatre tomorrow (Thursday).

Paul Zerdin’s ‘Puppet Master’ show will begin at 7.30pm on August 30.

“It’s not just the puppets he’s controlling,” said a spokesperson.

“With more than three million hits on YouTube, Paul returns to the live arena with Puppet Master, an exhilirating new show, jam-packed with surprises, twists and turns.

“Audiences will soon realise that it’s not just the puppets he’s controlling and will begin to wonder just who’s pulling their strings.

“Audiences will see Zerdin introduce a brand new character who will star alongside regulars - the cheeky pre-pubescent Sam, senior citizen Albert and the demanding and precocious Baby.

“From Royal Variety Performances to comedy festivals around the globe, Paul Zerdin is credited with making ventriloquism cool again,” they added.

The TImes has hailed Zerdin’s dynamic show as “breath-taking” and The Evening Standard has labelled his act “brilliant”.

Tickets for the show cost £16 for adults, £15 for over 60s and £11 for children.
