MARKUS BIRDMAN – THE BEARABLE HEAVINESS OF NEARLY NOT BEING

October 23, 2022 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

£5

Featuring:

‘How the f*ck is Markus Birdman not famous?’– Paul Sinha 

Thought you had a tough lockdown?

June 2021, I had a stroke.

I’d like to tell you about it.

Not to create feelings of pity toward me,

More a sense of awe & fawning admiration.

I’ve made this in the most heartfelt, honest & funny way I can.

So I really want you to come. Ive never believed in anything as much.

Fresh from supporting Jason Manford on tour, including two nights at The Palladium.

REVIEWS

CHORTLE –  4.5 stars STEVE BENNETT

“He has mined everything for humour, from the darkest moments of diagnosis to the humiliations he endured in the name of medical investigation and hit gold.

Hes of little sentimentality, his story an engine for gags, not for sympathy.

The result is a torrent of formidable gags, skilfully told, and with a gripping story underpinning them all.”

SCOTSMAN 4 stars – Kate Copstick

“this most personal hour is the best thing I have seen Markus Birdman do. Some of the lines here are more beautifully crafted than anything his heart surgeon will patch together in his holey ventricles. We get a combination of storytelling, observation and jokes that have had some real intensive care in the writing. Fantastic combination if you can manage it. He can.”

THE SKINNY 4 stars

“This soul bearing show is a joy. Such weighty material, handled with the utmost respect”
