Five outstanding musicians and one non-musical stand-up tune their instruments to hit the road as they embark on a brand-new tour, bringing musical mayhem across the UK.
Performing soon-to-be top hits, the six-headed musical comedy band bring their trademark unruly, ridiculous, and surprisingly satisfying stylings to an array of brand new songs. Expect plentiful enthusiastic dancing, party games, and a lot of mucking about, led by creator and co-host of BAFTA and National Comedy Award-winning hit TV show ‘Taskmaster’, Alex Horne.
They have two series of their own Channel 4 TV show, an iTunes-chart-topping podcast and now they’re tuning up their instruments once more to tour the country: it’s the Horne Section’s Hit Show!
“Britain’s Funniest Band” (The Guardian) have made appearances on The Last Leg (Channel 4), Peter Crouch’s Year- Late Euros (BBC One), they are Dictionary Corner regulars on 8 out of 10 Cats Does Countdown and the only band to ever host Never Mind The Buzzcocks. Separately, members of The Horne Section have performed with recording artists including Robbie Williams, Madness, Florence and the Machine, Amy Winehouse, George Ezra, Basement Jaxx, Disclosure and Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds.
Unruly, ridiculous, and surprisingly satisfying, the six-headed comedy band includes five outstanding musicians and one non-musical stand-up. There’ll be comedy, songs, enthusiastic dancing, and a lot of mucking about. A brand-new show from the hugely talented band and Alex Horne, the creator and co-host of the BAFTA and National Comedy Award winning Taskmaster.
