News: UK Tour For Taskmaster Man Alex Horne And His Horne Section

The Horne Section take their show back on tour from the 8th September to 30th May 2018, including a return of their Soho Theatre residency in London.

This is where music and comedy collide, creating a show packed with brass-based fun. Expect toe-tapping tunes on weighty issues such as beards, caveats and Scottish widows.

The Horne Section have enjoyed numerous sold-out runs at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe as well as at The Lyric Theatre - Shaftesbury Avenue, The Criterion Theatre and The Hackney Empire. Away from the stage they have hosted three series of the successful Alex Horne Presents The Horne Section (BBC Radio 4), regularly appear in dictionary corner on 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown (Channel 4), and were the first ever band to host an episode of Nevermind the Buzzcocks (BBC Two).

Acclaimed comedian Alex Horne is the unlikely band leader at the helm of The Horne Section. He is the creator and co-host of Taskmaster on Dave which returns for its fifth series on September 12th. The show has been licensed to numerous territories around the world, and a US version, with Reggie Watts (The Late Late Show with James Corden) taking on the role of Taskmaster has been made for Comedy Central. Alex is also an Edinburgh Fringe veteran taking nine solo shows to the festival and earning an Edinburgh Comedy Award nomination in 2014 following a Best NewcomerAward nomination in 2003.

The Horne Section are: Alex Horne, Joe Auckland (trumpet and banjo), Mark Brown (saxophone), Will Collier (bass), Ben Reynolds (drums and percussion) and Ed Sheldrake (keyboards).
