SUMMARY

He’s been kicking up quite a storm on his tour of rural England:

…a rapid sequence of characterizations, each no more than 5 minutes or so. But they progressed from the somewhat unsettling, to humorous, then outrageous, wildly funny and finally down-right shocking. (Andy Webb, Lustleigh review, Devon)

What is this show?

Not one for the gran. A British adaptation of Eric Bogosian's most hilarious characters from Drinking in America, Sex Drugs and Odd People and Pounding Nails in the floor with my forehead. It’s like a far out sketch show on speed!

Benjie Dudgeon will be performing all eleven of the show’s characters. So let’s introduce: Yorkshire terrorist, Urban Pervert, self help guru and the man too-stoned-for-clothes and their wayward friends.

Benjie Dudgeon has collaborated with actor Anton Saunders (Downton Abbey Series 2, The Heavy, Gangster No. 1) to update Bogosian's 1980's phenomenon about late night New York, into a highly original and theatrical show about contemporary British culture.

Please be advised that the show contains some strong language and some scenes of a less than puritanical nature. Edinburgh, you’ll want to get yourself along to Laughing Horse at Café Renroc at 10pm anytime between the 12th and 28th of Aug (not the 21st)
