Steve Hili’s five-star rated fringe show Burning Love. To the ground. is coming to Malta
The comedy dubbed ‘an interactive show with lasagne’ was called ‘Perfect’, ‘hilarious and eye-opening’ by review website Arts Awards Voice.
In it, the London-based Maltese stand-up comedian takes on the notion of ‘love’ in his unique high-energy style with a frantic mix of real-life experience, naughty observations, dodgy science and his favourite food.
Steve, who has been described by world-famous VICE magazine as having “The energy of a dog who needs to be taken out” explains ‘People have been asking the question “what is love?” since the beginning of history. So it was about time someone cracked it. Humanity can thank me later’.
Lasagne plays a big role in the show - in fact, audience members are offered some at the end, but that is not all. One of the most famous models of all time also takes part. Kind of.
Burning Love. To the ground. is being produced by TAC Theatre, hot on the tail of their critically-acclaimed summer rock musical Rock of Ages. Producer Wesley Ellul said “producing Steve’s hilarious and insightful one-man show was an absolute no-brainer. I‘m absolutely sure Burning love. To the ground. will be a will be a hit with local audiences, not only because it will cause LOLs, ROFLs and PMLs, but also it will leave them asking the question Haddaway asked in the 90s: “what is love?”
Burning Love. To the ground. will be performed at Palazzo Pererria, Valletta, between the 3rd and 6th November.
Tickets, starting from only €10, are available from www.ticketline.com.mt or from The Embassy Cinema Box office in Valletta.
