Guido Fanzini is as bald as a goose egg, but looks good in chiffon and lace and his Thunderous Entertainment Haberdashery promises 40 mins of fantastic comedy and pure fun in a spoof-danger, comedy circus show where the language of death-defying stunts is used at every turn, giving a comic edge to all the carry-on.
Fanzini Productions is one of the foremost street arts companies based in the Republic of Ireland, touring nationally and internationally. Con Horgan, founder of Fanzini, has been performing since 1997 in a duo show Fanzini Brothers and performing solo as Professor Plunger.
