Media Release
City College Students Present
Professional Comedian
Kevin Tomlinson
Internationally acclaimed comedian Kevin Tomlinson comes to City College Norwich on
Thursday 25 Feb 2010 with his fabulously entertaining view on life, ‘Seven Ages’.
Most of us go through seven stages in life – according to William Shakespeare in As You Like
It – infancy, childhood, lover, soldier, wisdom, retirement and old age. Using this as his
starting point, Kevin takes true stories from his own life and that of his audience and explores
the Seven Ages of life “idea”, via the use of masks and improvisation.
Part comedy, part serious theatre, the show explores two of the most important questions you
can ever ask yourself such as; “Why am I here?” and “What’s important in my life?”
Having performed all over the world – New Zealand, America, Canada and Hawaii, Kevin is
fast becoming internationally renowned for his unique and exciting performance style, which
involves the use of comic half masks and spontaneous improvisation.
