A BOY band proud to be known as the worst in the world will play a home turf gig later this month.

Henley’s No Direction HoT Boys will entertain audiences at the Little Angel on Friday, January 23. Theband describes themselves as a “comedy variety act” who, despite their self depreciating publicity, have appeared at a number of festivals in the past 12 months.

The band is a six-piece with three frontmen, and has an average age of 53.

Singer Mike Holland said: We don’t take ourselves too seriously and I think people like that. We play well and sound good but all we do is definitely tongue in cheek — which might explain why the vocals sound so odd.”

He is joined by Peter McConnell and Martyn EEK Cooper. They are supported by Patrick Causer on guitar, Terry Pearce on double bass and Kate Cooper on percussion.

ONE comic’s homage to one of the most popular American TV shows in recent years comes to Reading this spring.

One Man Breaking Bad — the unauthorised parody aims to condense 60 episodes of the award-winning show into just one instalment.

The man behind it is LA comedian and actor Miles Allen. His solo show has been an internet sensation with more than a million hits on video-streaming site Youtube as well as sell-out runs at Edinburgh and Melbourne comedy festivals.

Allen’s show includes accurate renditions of all the iconic characters, including Walter White, Jesse, Saul, Skyler, Hank, Walt Junior, Mike and Gus Fring.

He said: “This show is a love letter for all the fans who lived through the blood, meth, and tears of the greatest television show ever made. However the only tears in my show will be from laughter, and I promise no less when I bring it back to the UK!”

One Man Breaking Bad appears at the Hexagon on March 21. Box office 0118 960 6060 or online at
