Becoming Johnny Vegas at the Edinburgh Fringe

Ahead of the release of his Autobiography in September, Johnny Vegas makes a welcome return to the Edinburgh Fringe in conversation with Novelist and Screenwriter Frank Cottrell Boyce to discuss his upcoming eye-poppingly frank memoir.

From BBC Dickens adaptations to Benidorm and Ideal to the PG Tips ads, Johnny Vegas has become one of Britain’s best-loved comic actors.

But before he’d ever drunk tea with a knitted monkey or made himself the exception that proves the rule in terms of the predictability of TV panel game regulars, Johnny Vegas was perhaps the most fearlessly confessional stand-up comedian this country has ever produced.

So, how did an eleven-year-old Catholic trainee priest from St Helens grow up to become the North West of England’s answer to Lenny Bruce? That’s just one of the many questions that Frank will be asking Johnny.

The show takes place on Sunday 11th August 2013 at The Famous Spiegeltent.
Tickets are priced at £10 and can be purchased here.
