Fat Roland: Seven Inch

Comedy (spoken word, absurdist)

Add to favourites

Description

In the last record shop still standing, Manchester comic Fat Roland re-examines his life through not-so-teenage kicks, surrounded by forgettable (and unforgettable) pop music. Amid the cobwebbed racks and fading seven-inch singles, he faces his 45th birthday alone – when a new opportunity comes knocking, will Roland pack up his gramophone? A five-star, one-idiot commission for The Lowry, Salford, adapted especially for the Edinburgh Fringe. ‘A comedic onslaught of musical puns, cultural references and audience interaction.’ ***** (UpstagedManchester.com). ’A funny, silly and entertaining show that comedy and music fans will love.’ **** (TheReviewsHub.com).

Hilarious. Fat Roland is so adorable - his expertise at creating a bumbling, apologetic, near-defeat persona is a masterclass in how to create character comedy. The Kiss from a Rose joke is my favourite bit! This show is a must-see.

My best show of the fringe so far. Clever, funny and moving. So much effort has clearly gone into a show with so much detail. Wonderful and high quality entertainment

One of my favourites from this year's free fringe. Come and support Roland, it's his 45 birthday today after all. Great laughs in a tiny venue just what the fringe should be about.
