Leggoland (Colin Leggo / Free Festival)

By | Published on Thursday 27 August 2015


Having a leg amputated has been good for Colin Leggo; for one thing, he can wear shoes again. Leggo is wonderfully silly, engaging with his audience as if he were chatting with friends. Armed with PowerPoint and an arsenal of puns, he takes us on a humorous ten-year journey through his life before and after his below-the-knee amputation, a consequence of undiagnosed Type 1 diabetes. Dropping in tales from his childhood, Leggo isn’t afraid of poking fun at himself, or of seeing the positive side to having a plastic foot. Bursting with optimism and character, this is a pleasantly uplifting and brilliantly entertaining show that proves you really can make the best from whatever life throws at you.

Laughing Horse @ The Blind Poet, until 30 Aug.
