Je M’accuse – I Am Marcus (Off The Kerb Productions In Association With Corduroy Productions)

By | Published on Friday 16 August 2013

A skilled showman, it came as no great surprise that Marcus Brigstocke gave a great performance. His perfectly-timed gags were delivered with his trademark ease and coolness, as he discussed former jobs as an oil-rig worker and a dancer. We also hear of the darker aspects of his past, including an eating disorder, and a drink and drug addiction, but these more serious subjects were approached with the perfect balance of sensitivity and humour. It is essentially a series of anecdotes from his life, and steers clear of his usual political satire. So if you’re a fan, or are just keen to be treated to a live showcase of Brigstocke’s killer dance moves, then this show is not likely to disappoint.

Assembly Hall, until 25 Aug (not 12), 9.10pm.
