You get home, the door is smashed, a burglar flees. You chase – to the backing of ‘Flight of the bumblebee’. And then… a sting in the tale – let’s play.

‘Bumblebee' is the multi-award nominated and critically acclaimed show from comedian and host of global hit podcasts Psycomedy and Daily Notes, Nathan Cassidy. It’s an edge-of-your-seat, thought provoking and laugh-filled chase story as Nathan pursues his burglar and his life flashes before his eyes, with all those individual stories coming together to answer some of his big lifelong questions. Think all the suspense of a Netflix true crime documentary with all the storming, powerful comedy of the only live performer at the 2020 Edinburgh Fringe with a total sell-out run at the 2021 Festival. This is Nathan Cassidy with a powerhouse of a performance and a barn-stormer of a show, with an ending that will make your jaw drop to the floor!

“Watch a very talented and funny man construct a jigsaw puzzle where all the pieces neatly slot into place at the end...funny, astute and surprisingly warm-hearted.” ★★★★ NWE UK 2021

“Had a blast watching Bumblebee... I really needed a laugh and Nathan delivered them in spades!”

The Plays The Thing, Manchester Sep 2021

“An enigmatic story-teller... excellently thought through... enjoyable and funny.”

Reviewer No. 9, Manchester Sep 2021

“His pacing, stage-presence, confidence and storytelling are exemplary, and you can tell how polished and perfected he’s made his show.’ (Seagull News Brighton 2021 for ‘Bumblebee’)

“Comic, and semi-tragic, memories from childhood are blended with a Charlie Brooker style take down of the villains of politics, economics and social media, from the last 12 months. For a stand up to create something which united the entire audience in laughter, oozed pathos, and in an almost tangible sense ‘connected’ the whole room, and for it to have been written in the isolation of a post-burgled house is no mean feat and testament to a very exciting talent indeed.” (Mumble Comedy Edinburgh 2021 for ‘Bumblebee’)

“A classic, rollercoaster Fringe hour” ★★★★ (Bruce Dessau, The Times 2020 for ‘Observational’)

“An extraordinary story richly accessorised with laughter. The best live comedy I have seen this August.” (Kate Copstick, The Scotsman 2020 for ‘Observational’)
