The quick-thinking queen of ventriloquism and British Comedy Award-winner Nina Conti returns to New York City with her five-star smash hit show, direct from sell-out seasons in London’s West End and at the Edinburgh Festival. In this dating-infused live show, there’s no promise that true love will be found, but a firm guarantee of big laughs will be had in the reign of this ‘voice-throwing queen’.

The Dating Show is an entirely improvised and audience-interactive ventriloquial comedy show performed by Nina Conti (with her vent puppet Monkey). In the show, she dons masks onto willing audience members onstage and ‘voices’ them based on their gestures alone, bringing to life their dating history, romance tales and match-making singletons. Nina’s unique and hilarious talent enables her to ‘voice’ multiple audience members on stage at once, leading to a crescendo of a performance.

The Dating Show completed a sell-out tour of the UK in 2020/21, including a sell-out run in London’s West End, before being one of the biggest-selling shows at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2022. It first opened off-Broadway at the SoHo Playhouse in January 2023 for a limited run, before returning in March 2023 - where ticket holders included several notable faces including Naomi Watts (who came twice), Susan Sarandon (who ended up onstage in the show), JJ Abrams, Richard Kind (who came for a third time) and more.
