Doktor James' Bad Skemes at Vault Festival

The Vaults, Arch 233, 10 Leake Street, London SE1 7NN

17th + 18th February 2018 | 1.40pm | £9.50

I play scathing super-villain Doktor Jane in this brilliant show for kids - she appears via screen only and it'll be loads of fun!

Anarchic humour from the winner of the IYAF Brighton Fringe Stand-Up Comedy Award, James Bennison aka Doktor James. The comedian behind a "blast of a show" (Fest Mag), Edinburgh hit 'Akademy of Evil'. Spend a very silly hour of fast-paced fun, practising your most evil laugh in "an air of controlled chaos that works as well for adults as for kids" (Fest Mag).


Doktor James is sick of living at home and not being taken seriously as a supervillain. He is really, really bad and he just wants to beat his superhero brother and take over the world… Bad as in evil by the way, not bad as in rubbish. He definitely isn’t rubbish.

Well, maybe he is a bit rubbish… and with the arrival of a new Supervillain he needs to prove that he’s better at being evil than everybody else. Doktor James has therefore brought out all his best bad plans and now he just needs some really naughty children to help him get them working.

Are you naughty enough to take over the world? Are you secretly a genius with a lot of plans and inventions? Are you really good at dancing? If the answer to any of these questions is YES then Doktor James needs your help.

Prepare for an anarchic and very silly hour of deadly fun, perfect for 6 – 11 year olds who want to become more powerful, more naughty and more in charge of the entire world.

★★★★ (Fest).
‘Represents the best of the fringe’ (Primary Times).
