Description

32 athletes entered the 1904 Olympic marathon in St Louis, Missouri. Only 14 finished... What happened in between was a perfect storm of stupidity, cheating, raw eggs, wild dogs and rat poison. In his Edinburgh debut, New Zealand comedian Nic Sampson brings to life the incredible true story of one of the dumbest sporting events of all time. Co-writer of Starstruck (BBC Three). Star of The Brokenwood Mysteries (UKTV). 'A world-class hour from one of the country's best performers. It's essential' (Stuff). 'A beautiful gem of comedic goodness' (Three). Winner: NZ International Comedy Festival Best Newcomer.
