Description

A fiercely powerful and critically acclaimed show about a brutally shocking story; Chris’ father was murdered in 2011. How do you forgive your father’s murderer? Only Chris knows… Inspiring uproarious laughter, tears of sincerity and standing ovations, Chris’ conscientious comedy and cutting-edge poetry makes for a truly unforgettable show. Returning to the Fringe from 2019 – now the full length version of this extraordinary story. 'A masterclass in confessional comedy' **** (Telegraph). 'McGlade elicits laughter and tears' **** (Mail on Sunday). 'Heartfelt and often intense' **** (Chortle.co.uk). 'Big old-fashioned belly-laughs... a unique comedy voice' **** (Scotsman).

If you have to reinforce your working class credentials by shouting about it, belittling members of the audience in the name of good old fashioned bonding (that’s the way of it in the working man’s clubs) you now know what an evening of Chris McGlade is about. You also know why these places are no longer nurseries for sharp eyed and quick witted entertainers of the future. Sorry about his Dad’s murder and left wondering about his act of forgiveness but this tub thumping dinosaur drove me away long before he got near his hook of a story used to sell his show.
