Big Box Aliens is an alternative comedy experience like no other. Part autobiography, John delves into his bizarre childhood and tries his best to peddle you his hilarious wares from his stall. We are told the false re-telling of the Passover story from Gran; that the aliens came down to save us from the desert in a big box. Will they come down again today?

With his unique surreal and musical style, John touches on some big issues; anti-semitism, biphobia and the perils of online dating. Gently interactive and mildly nostalgic with some deep moments, Big Box Aliens is a fringe show Manchester will not want to miss!
