With politics in the news a lot recently, one of the UK's most famous novelty politicians, Count Binface, has announced he is coming to Glasgow on tour.

Heading across the UK this autumn, the count says he is going to "save us all from imminent disaster" with his MEGA (Make Earth Great Again) plans.

He's confirmed that he will be heading to the Òran Mór on September 19 with tickets available now.

One of the biggest years in recent decades for politics, with elections all over the globe, Binface recently ran in the London Mayoral Election and is taking on Prime Minister Rishi Sunak in the General Election.

Hot off the back of the UK’s General Election, Binface has announced he will be "invading a theatre near you" with his brand new live comedy show, featuring his unique take on Britain, his special brand of sci-fi satire, and of course, his manifesto, which features the likes of cheaper croissants, the nationalisation of Adele and the return of Ceefax.

Having delighted millions with his unlikely tilts at power in the UK, from taking on Theresa May in the 2017 General Election, cunningly disguised as 'Lord Buckethead', to going viral and appearing on Last Week Tonight with John Oliver and at The Glastonbury Festival.

He's also challenged Boris Johnson (in 2019), when he scored 69 votes, and first ran to be Mayor of London in 2021, when he received 92,896 votes from the public that sent him into ninth place.

This year he won 24,260 votes, got endorsed by a national newspaper and beat the fascists of Britain First.
