High-flying stand-up Marcus Brigstocke is coming down to earth – to play Aberdeen’s Lemon Tree in April!
The comedian, actor and satirist was on Britain’s television screens last night (Wednesday) in BBC 2’s World's Most Dangerous Roads, risking life and limb driving along Bolivia’s ‘death road’ and the salt lake of Uyuni with fellow funnyman Phil Jupitus.
He’s following up his high-altitude adventure, along part of the world's largest salt plain, with a UK-wide tour of his hotly-anticipated new show The Brig Society.
One of Britain's finest comedians and broadcasters, he will play The Lemon Tree Studio on Monday, April 1 and tickets for the show go on sale next Friday, January 18, online at www.boxofficeaberdeen.com, by phone at 01224 641122 and at Aberdeen Box Office at the Music Hall and His Majesty’s Theatre.
His new stand-up show involves no less than the total restructuring of every aspect of life in Britain, organised through the medium of jokes.
In addition to the BBC2 series – which challenges celebrities to tackle some of the world’s most infamous highways – Marcus has worked extensively in stand-up comedy, television, radio and starred in the hugely-successful stage production of the hilarious Monty Python musical Spamalot.
He is particularly associated with the 6.30pm comedy slot on BBC Radio 4, having frequently appeared on several of its shows.
He also played a cameo role in Richard Curtis's romantic comedy Love Actually as Mike, a radio DJ who interviews Billy Mack (played by Bill Nighy).
