TV talent show spoof Factor 2025 bounces on to the West End stage next Saturday, February 7, thanks to local comedian and author Johnny Tait.
It is being premiered at a 3pm matinee at the Leicester Square before a performance at the London Palladium in May with Joe Longthorne.
Having performed in theatres and clubs all over the UK for a number of years, Johnny sees the current brand of TV talent shows as damaging to mainstream variety.
So along came Factor 2025 giving the audience a comical, cynical and controversial insight into the way producers manipulate the shows’ participants in order to increase viewing figures.
Johnny plays the role of the producer himself whom the hopefuls are eager to impress and nail a spot on national TV.
