Description

Best Spoken Word winner, Greater Manchester Fringe 2018. Marlon's a Jew. This didn't bother him much until he discovered that some people he knew didn't believe the Holocaust happened. From 9/11 to shape-shifting lizards and Holocaust denial, this is a darkly comic tale of one man's journey through the conspiracy underworld. Marlon explores why conspiracy theories are more popular than ever, how fake news gives fresh currency to ancient slander and how this all relates to current issues in the Labour Party. A comic tale which is no laughing matter. @supergutman

This isn't laugh a minute humour. But is very interesting and thought provoking show. Well worth seeing.

A funny, clever and very important show. Go and see it.

A thought provoking session, but very sad. How have some parts of society sunk this low? Needs to be seen - but I wasn't sure about the musical elements. Talking about obsessive anti-semitism is not an issue that can generate much humour in my view.

A powerful, thought provoking show. Brought tears to my eyes. This show matters.

The Wee Review (4/5 stars) 26 days ago

Marlon Solomon didn’t feel all that Jewish until he became fully aware of the sheer weight of anti-Semitism being casually bandied around the internet, on the streets, in sold-out stadiums across the UK and within the Labour Party (of which he is a member). This last point makes his hour-long...

Broadway Baby (4/5 stars) 44 days ago

Conspiracy theories can sometimes be reduced to light hearted niche interests only fully embraced by weirdos on the fringes of society. Could it even be possible for a 'conspiracy theory to lead “life-long anti-racists” to start peddling anti-Semitic rhetoric? Marlon Solomon presents the view that at some point there is...
