NOVELIST, actor, ex MP, podcaster, and best-selling biographer Gyles Brandreth just ‘Can’t Stop Talking’ as he returns to the stage this summer.

Kicking off his tour at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and performing around the UK from 1st September, Brandreth will bring his ‘Can’t Stop Talking’ tour to Yeovil in September.

The award-winning raconteur, wordsmith, and verbivore, who holds the world record for the longest-ever after-dinner speech (12 and a half hours) suffers from logorrhea, and in his hilarious new one-man show he is trying to work out why.

A former Oxford Scholar, President of the Oxford Union and MP for the City of Chester, Gyles Brandreth’s career has ranged from being a Whip and Lord Commissioner of the Treasury in John Major’s government to starring in his own award-winning musical revue in London’s West End.

A prolific broadcaster, Gyles has appeared on QI, Have I Got News For You, Would I Lie To You?, Pointless and is a reporter and presenter for The One Show (BBC 1), as well as Dictionary Corner’s most frequent resident on Countdown (Channel 4).

On stage, he has appeared most recently in Hamlet and The Importance of Being Earnest.

He is the Chancellor of the University of Chester, a columnist for The Oldie, and the author of seven Victorian murder mysteries featuring Oscar Wilde as his detective now published in 22 countries around the world.

His Sunday Times best-sellers include a biography of Elizabeth II, Word Play, The 7 Secrets of Happiness, and, most recently, his autobiography, Odd Boy Out.

He won the Audience Award for Most Popular Show on the Fringe, multiple 5-star reviews, and every time he’s been to Edinburgh his shows have sold out.

The show will be in Yeovil on September 6 at Westlands.
