Steve Furst's one-man show will open at the Museum of Comedy this October.

In Character is the actor and comedian's piece featuring five different characters of Furst's own creation, including waltzer-owner Ernie Vas and several originally created in 2002.

Furst's character The Mayor of Kentish Town will also feature in In Character. The Mayor is a straight-talking politician who spends his time wandering the streets of Kentish Town offering up his views on how to fix the borough's problems, including turning car parks into 'homeless bays'.

The piece is directed by Andrew Keates and runs from 5 to 7 October. Furst's previous work include playing Mr Wormwood in Matilda, Made in Dagenham and host of the WhatsOnStage Awards.
