They say misery seeks company. Nah, I just need an audience.
More modern, dark, comedic and visual reworkings of the classic Grimm’s Fairytales. It worked pretty good last time in my 2015 5-star Edinburgh show Grimm Realities, and if it ain’t bust don’t fix it.
Running Time: 60 mins
Age recommendation: 16+
‘Twistedly brilliant cartoons accompanying his recitation of two reworked, childhood fairy-tales; Cinderella and Little Red Riding Hood. A master storyteller, charming the audience into the palm of his hand.’
‘Birdman’s show is a triumph. Grimm Realities deals with coming to terms with his daughter growing up, with a mixture of comical perspectives and re-imagined fairy tales. Not so filthy that it’s crass, but filthy and clever enough to warrant constant laughter from the audience.’
‘Probably the most absorbing show I have seen. Completely spellbinding.’
