The Man (Edfringe preview )
“People should see this, people NEED to see this.” Noel Faulkner (Comedy Cafe)
Come see the birth of a true modern Jester, a voice for the people The Man is a punchy and surreal atomisation of the shadowy controlling forces that shape our modern world.
Acetic, fluid and dark, he is like vinegar, but vinegar that challenges you and what you accept as the norm. A lone vigilante, The Man ploughs through sacred cows like an allegorical abattoir, doing for preconceptions what battering rams do for doors.
“Butter my buttocks and call me Bridget if he is not one of the best things I have seen… Diamond hard and needle sharp, superb satire and a persona that is somewhere between The Joker and a 21st Century Facebook Oscar Wilde. Show me more” – Kate Copstick (Chief Comedy Critic, The Scotsman)
