TOM TOAL: BETTER THAN BEFORE

GORDON SOUTHERN: THAT’S A FUN FACT

CAREY MARX: THE AFTERWIFE
Carey’s marriage has crumbled and he now finds himself single at the age of 51. He turns to his guitar, carrying it everywhere and writing songs about everything. But it’s not a midlife crisis or a strange depression according to one of his songs he wrote one night while sleeping with his guitar. Soon, his relationship with his guitar becomes as complicated as the one with his wife. The guitar wants a divorce. In this savagely introspective show, Carey tries to come to terms with failure, disappointment, enthusiasm and freedom. His cynicism becomes inextricable married to dark cold reality. But don’t fear, nothing is too dark, cold, or real for Carey.
Carey Marx is the writer and star of BBC Radio 4’s Intensive Carey, twice winner of Best International Show at the New Zealand Comedy Festival, and Leicester Comedy Festival Best Show nominee.
