Kevin, King of Egypt

Rob Gee (creator of the sell-out Forget-Me-Not and AWOL) brings this story of Kevin, a very unlikely hero, to The Hub.

Escaped mental health patient Kevin Haggerty is not pleased about his diagnosis, even less pleased about being on a section of the Mental Health Act and distinctly upset about being told he is not the reincarnation of the pharaoh Ramses 2nd. On his way to Egypt, via the Tesco Express, he stumbles across the nemesis to all his plans: Millie – a six-year old girl mislaid by her father. Together they embark on a journey that will change their lives forever.

Rob, who has won over twenty awards for his solo shows, has performed with luminaries such as Harold Pinter, Sue Townsend, Jo Brand, Sarah Millican and Frankie Boyle. He is patron of Leicestershire Action for Mental Health Project (LAMP) and lead artist for the Comedy Asylum: comedy shows created and performed by people receiving mental health treatment. He also goes into mental health units to help people create their own comedy and poetry. “The simple act of sharing a joke with someone can be tremendously therapeutic. Above all, laughter can remind us that we’re not alone.” Rob’s workshops in mental health settings recently won the Make Me Happy award at the Leicester Comedy Festival.

“A mind-roasting bipolar joy-ride… Gee is a super-energetic, uber-likeable, highly gifted writer/performer… a moving, funny, deeply human show not to be missed.” Victoria Times ★★★★½

“Delightful… Gee finds humour and heart among the humanity.” Orlando Sentinel

“This marvellous show isn’t at all what it initially seems to be, much like the characters themselves… we are led into a world inhabited by several characters, all delivered in beautifully measured tones… beautifully realised, this show is a treat.” Fringe Review, UK
