Ed Gaughan (Work in Progress)

Brand new work in progress from Award Winning Idiot!

Last year Ed did his first solo show for 18 years and he really enjoyed it so he’s going again...

Things this WIP may contain..jokes (2) History (some, probably fairly inaccurate) Science (made up) stories, characters, sketches, music, some stuff about Napoleon (the boring Ridley Scott snoozefest starring that pound shop Marlon Brando AND the real story of the chippy little Corsican fella) Lions.

Things this WIP will almost certainly not contain... Lions.

Keep your expectations low and nobody gets hurt.

Over many years Ed has written, directed and performed work for and with many of the UK’s most loved acts- including Milton Jones, Josie Long,Will Adamsdale, Barry Cryer, Pappy’s and Spymonkey.

He’s also the voice of Baron Greenback in Dangermouse, Gideon in Sky TV’s Brassic and the Co-creator, co-writer and star of the BAFTA nominated movie ‘Skeletons’ which won the ‘Michael Powell Award For Cinema’ at The Edinburgh Festival. Ed is a ‘Peter Sellers Award For Comedy’ nominee

As a musician Ed has performed numerous gigs including Glastonbury, London Jazz and Porto Jazz Festivals and as a composer for stage, screen and audio. (Most recently scoring ‘Hamlet’ for Shakespeare’s Globe)

“Original and intelligent, if Ed Gaughan doesn’t already have a cult fan base they should really set one up” **** Metro

“Eccentric, heartfelt and very funny” ****Guardian

“A surreal disorientating hybrid of theatre, stand up comedy and jazz concert incorporating a talent for accents and impressions with hysterical physical comedy”
**** Independent
