The Last Of The Famous International Amateurs, is an inventive and satirical sing-a-long hour packed with stand up, bawdy characters, revolutionary rants, spoken word and maybe even some actual poetry.
Part hilarious memoir of a socialist working at the coal face of cheesy light entertainment, part surrealist treatise about age and ego’s final showdown.
