Funny and heart-wrenching show on Disney films and painful break-ups
There are two themes in Tuck’s show: straight to DVD Disney films and severely painful break-ups. The connection isn’t immediately apparent, but Tuck’s brave finale combines both strands with some genuinely dark humour, while simultaneously his stage manner veers away from bumbling uncle on the Christmas port, towards obsessive, soft toy-snuggling melancholic. Funny and heart-wrenching.
