Giles Shenton (Old Herbaceous, Three Men in a Boat) returns with a “thought provoking” and “cleverly constructed, wonderful piece of theatre” about a man preparing to fulfil his lifelong ambition to be a stand-up comedian, “…puts one in mind of Alan Bennett’s Talking Heads” 

You join the man as he prepares backstage for his first ever stand-up comedy gig. Something he has waited over 30 years for. Find out how he got to this point in his life……but be warned……the man and the performance are not quite what they seem!

Reviews for ‘My Dog’s Got No Nose’:

 “Giles Shenton held his audience’s attention for nearly two hours; their interest or curiosity in the first half and then to have them fully engrossed in the second before a shocked silence when you could hear a pin drop in the auditorium.” Alton Herald

“Being billed as a comedy, and the title it has, understates what is a wonderful piece of theatre…..but this one-man performance, brilliantly put over by Giles Shenton, is so much more than that as it all evolves in the second half…..The audience was privileged to be entertained, and have its emotions thoroughly massaged, by such a thought provoking and high quality production.” Beccles & Bungay Journal

“Giles Shenton gifts us with another tour de force…catch it while you can!” Surrey Advertiser

“Saw My Dog’s Got No Nose yesterday at the Stables Theatre, Great Comp. Can’t tell you what an impression Giles Shenton had on my husband and myself. From thinking we had a not very good stand up, to one of the best acted and produced shows we have seen in a long time is an understatement. Please thank Giles on our behalf. He was brilliant and we look forward to seeing him in more shows.” Audience feedback
