The Meaning of Riff

 

 

Using comedy, storytelling and a flying V guitar, performer Eamonn Fleming and director Andy Burden present this gem of a show all about a lifelong Love/Hate affair with the genius and stupidity that is Heavy Metal. From Teenage obsession to Midlife Crisis, this is a show for anyone who’s ever heard a loud guitar and felt the urge to jump up and down and break things.

Tim Key: Masterslut

EDINBURGH COMEDY AWARD WINNER 2009

Tim Key is back on tour. Still spunking poetry everywhere. Now 35 years old.

Key’s cropped up in Newswipe, Cowards and We Need Answers and appears as Alan Partridge’s sidekick in Mid Morning Matters. Key won The Edinburgh Comedy Award for his 2009 recital, Slutcracker. Key was nominated for a Bafta in 2008 and he’s got a late night poetry programme on Radio 4.

This is sublime, busy and evocative work from a man who keeps getting better and better.  THE LIST

At times it’s like a wind up; elsewhere it’s so lovely you could bathe in it. GUARDIAN

This is one art house form-buster who can really give you a good time.  TIMES

Once you have seen this show, ordinary stand-up will seem disappointingly bland. OBSERVER

In any other sphere apart from comedy, we’d probably class this way of looking at the world as certifiable. Here it feels like genius. TELEGRAPH
