This event was originally scheduled for Wed 8 Apr but has been rescheduled to Thu 30 Jul due to COVID-19.
Multi award-winning comedian Simon Munnery reprises his notorious alter ego, the bedsit anarchist Alan Parker Urban Warrior. Once the most radical, now the only radical, Alan returns with the old gold, the old truths, and some new truths (based on the old truths). For over 35 years, Munnery has performed around the world, experimenting with and innovating the stand-up form. In the 1990s, his Alan Parker: Urban Warrior character took the comedy circuit by storm, garnering Munnery his own BBC Radio 1 series, which Time Out London called the funniest thing on Radio One and a residency on ITVs Saturday Live.
1996 saw him collaborate with Graham Linehan and Stewart Lee for BBC2 show, London Shouting, in his Alan Parker guise, and the character also become a regular contributor to NME magazine.
Gloriously inept radical anorak.’
Marx, Engles and Sid Vicious would all have died laughing.
Munnerys parody of a punk rock anarcho snowflake, hand drawn with real love for its subject, returns to a world worse than any he could have imagined in his home decade of the 1980s.
Simon Munnery is a British Comedy Award nominee, Perrier Award nominee, Sony Radio Award winner and Chortle Award winner. Hes most recently appeared in C4s acclaimed Flowers, and will soon be seen in Will Sharpes Louis Wain movie biopic, co-starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Claire Foy.
