Edinburgh Festival Fringe - Suggs: My Life Story In Words And Music 2102: Suggs
Suggs is back on the road with his witty memoir style show which captures the same humour, spirit and genial madness that make him and his band so enticing live.
In 'Suggs: My Life Story' the Madness front-man (aka Graham McPherson) takes to the stage in a hilarious, yet moving, one-man tour de force playing to rave reviews.
The death of Suggs' beloved cat on his 50th birthday triggers a personal quest to discover what happened to the father he never knew. Stunned by what he learns Suggs is taken back to his childhood on the tough streets of 1970s Soho and his first appearance on Top Of The Pops at the age of 18...
Is it a play? Is it stand up comedy? Is it Music Hall? Whatever it is hold on to your seats as Suggs goes on to stumble and plummet through the trap door of failure. Then trampolines back up to catch the passing trapeze of show business success!
With musical accompaniment and uncalled for interjection from Deano his loyal manservant-cum-pianist.
Suggs made his name as the frontman with '80s chart-toppers Madness and has taken that wacky zaniness with him through a career as an actor (a lead
character who exploded in the first ten minutes!) and TV compere (small-screen karaoke anyone?).
'Suggs is an effortlessly engaging raconteur' (Simon Price, Sunday Independent)
'... the charisma of an accomplished actor... the timing of a veteran standup' (Mark Lawson, The Guardian)
'Very funny, and delivered with a sense of timing and phrasing that many common-or-garden comics could learn much from' (Dominic Cavendish, The Daily Telegraph).
