SUpERHERO SECRET ORIGINS: SPECIAL EDITION SHOWS

Superhero Secret Origins : Special Edition

The original interactive presentation about the history of Superheroes.  From the birth of Superman, to the Rise of Marvel, here’s a presentation full of things you thought you already knew.  As much about the creators and the times as the characters, it’s a show for geeks and novices alike.

It is very funny and very well delivered with an obvious enthusiasm for the subject matter that keeps the audience interested and laughing throughout.
★★★★ – Short.co.uk Edinburgh 2016

Secret Origins 2: Women in Comics

The sequel!  Expanding the Superhero Comedic Universe ( yeah I know ) .

There was one thing missing from the original show – Ladies!  But that was on purpose, because they deserve a show of their own.  And here it is.  

"Women in Comics" tracks the history of female Superheroes ( heroines ? ) from the 30’s to the present day. A lot has changed… and a lot hasn’t.  With Wonder Woman about to hit the big screen, now is the time to tell the full story, and what a story it is!

Mr Roper knows his stuff….a complex examination of both the character’s feminist credentials and her creators’ unconventional lifestyles

Superheroes For Kids


Superheroes For Kids


SUPERHEROES for KIDS

Because with great power comes great silliness!

Any show about Superheroes attracts kids, and so it should.  But the original wasn’t really aimed at younglings. 

This one is.

Superheroes for Kids is the same celebration of Comic Book Superheroes as the adult version… just with a lot more silliness. 

Games, quizzes, songs and spectacular super nonsense.  Dressing up is encouraged, and parents will learn important stuff about Superheroes!

The interaction with the children on stage is well-handled and funny...This is a perfect show for 5-12 year olds, especially, but not exclusively, those who love superheroes.

About


About


Superhero Secret Origins

debuted in Edinburgh 2015 and
was the brainchild of comedian Andrew Roper.

Andrew was heavily involved in the successful “ Battle of the Superheroes “ Debate Format show, but wanted to do something about the history of these characters.  Where did they come from? Who created them?  What don’t you know?  That idea evolved into Superhero Secret Origins.  An interactive presentation that aims to both celebrate superheroes, and surprise you with the stories behind them.  For novices and geeks alike.

Andrew Roper has been a stand up comedian and writer for over 20 years. including a decade of Stand Up comedy performing all over London and the UK.  He has performed multiple times at Comedy Festivals in Melbourne, Perth, Adelaide, Brighton and Edinburgh.

Outside of stand up, corporate work and festivals he has also had long radio stints at TT FM, MIX FM, and GOLD FM in Australia, as well as a briefly working on a children’s show at FOX FOOTY.

Roper brings with him an air of professionalism .. impeccable delivery.
— CHORTLE ( Edinburgh Fest )
