Alex Horne: The Horne Section


A mix of stand-up, cabaret and live music.

Alex and his five piece band build on the success of their BBC Radio 4 series by performing a mix of stand-up, cabaret and live music.

Best known for their Radio Four series, The Horne Section bring together stand-up and live music in free-wheeling and spontaneous harmony. Tonight they will be jamming as part of HighTide Festival Walthamstow. Front man Alex Horne once hosted Never Mind The Buzzcocks with his band performing behind him but he's now best know as creator and scorekeeper on the comedy panel show Taskmaster.

The first band to ever host Never Mind The Buzzcocks (BBC 2) are rolling into town with brand new barnstorming show. Hot on the heels of their BBC Radio 4 series, four years of sell out shows in the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and West End - expect a heady mix of spontaneous stand-up, spectacular performance and outlandish musical talent led by the brilliant comedian Alex Horne. Gathering together the UK's finest musicians and throwing them together on stage with the world's most exciting comics, The Horne Section brings its indomitable fanfare to the stage.
