Justin Heazlewood returns with his first comedy show since 2012 – about cats

Cat Show will be first show that the Bedroom Philosopher (real name Justin Heazlewood) has done since 2012 – and it’s almost exactly what it sounds like. “Along the way you forget to have fun as an artist because you take it so seriously,” he says. “So I tried to be silly: it’s about cats. There’s an eight-and-a-half-minute ballad about a heroic mattress protector called ‘Mattress Protector’. There’s a song call ‘I Think My Cat’s Got Depression’ which runs through all the mental illnesses and how cats display the classic behaviours of those illnesses.”
