A Slice of Elvis

Comedy (musical comedy, character comedy)

Strictly no Under 5s. Age 5+ allowed until 6pm; Strictly 18+ after 18:00


Join comedian Mike McAlpine on his fretful, compulsive and hilarious escapades as Elvis tribute artist Mikelvis! Mike is a well-travelled journeyman on the international tribute circuit with 30 years of ETA experience. A wealth of passion for the King of Rock‘n’Roll but none of the physical likeness provide Mike with plenty opportunity to observe from the festival sidelines and bring you, the viewer, his scathing, heartfelt and comical conclusions. Let's rock'n'roll!

What a great show! I very much enjoyed this mix of physical comedy, well performed Elvis songs, and authentic insight into Mike‘s Elvis Tribute World. Funny, a bit crazy and informative at once. Loved it!

A great show! Highly entertaining for impersonations of the eclectic mix of individuals making up Elvis Tribute Acts (and their better halves). Some lovely anecdotes and even better musical numbers.
Even if you don't like Elvis, it's worth a watch... but who doesn't love Elvis??!!

I saw Mike 5 years ago when he performed his North South divide show so was keen to see his ETA show - it did not disappoint - some great observations, cracking jokes and some Elvis thrown in - what’s not to like ? Go and enjoy a night of fun with Mikelvis

Mike is the consummate professional oneofakind entertainers. I was blown away by his ability to mix comedy, method acting and musical prowess into a seamless fast paced tour de force. It's not just a show for Elvis fans, it's about the human condition and how we relate to each other with a common love of one thing. Truly an amazing hour and a show that needs to tour and reach a wider audience.

I saw Mike perform his UK premier of A Slice of Elvis in Whitley Bay before he headed off for the Edinburgh Fringe and I was quite amazed how cleverly he'd put the show together dipicting the life of an Elvis Tribute Artist. On the entertainment level too Mike lived up to his usual funny self combined with great Elvis singing voice and a few superb impressions thrown in for good measure. We want more!! We want more!! ❤️

Weaving a clever narrative around perfectly performed Elvis songs, Mike is a master mimic , with a skill for Pathos and audience interaction. His well executed attack on narcissism in the form of a former POTUS is poetic. You don’t know what an ETA is, then go to this show.

As an Elvis Tribute Artist having a few days away in Edinburgh, I was interested to see what this show was all about, and how accurate it would be to the industry I know (and how good an Elvis this guy really is!!). My wife and I sat through the show and thoroughly enjoyed Mike's take on it. Everything he said about Elvis and the Elvis industry was true and very funny. His impersonations, not just of Elvis but many other famous people (I won't say who, but you need to see it) were fabulous and hilarious. Combined with some guitar playing, the 'moves' and humour, it all added up to a very good hours show. Fully recommended not just to Elvis fans but anyone wanting to relax and be entertained for an hour. I would go again if I was still there!
