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.

Johnny Vegas And Another Thing…

Johnny Vegas And Another Thing…

Manchester International Festival 2011
11 – 17 July 2011 Pavilion Theatre

Johnny Vegas returns to Manchester International Festival with a new theatre show in the Festival’s own performance space, the Pavilion Theatre on Albert Square.

Following the success of his darkly original show Interiors, the feel bad hit of MIF07, Johnny Vegas will make theatrical history this summer in a hugely ambitious show entitled And Another Thing…

Kevin Eldon Exploring the world of the home shopping TV channel, Vegas, Kevin Eldon and Emma Fryer play three members of a shopping channel team with very different attitudes, aims and aspirations. As we watch them at work behind and literally live in front of the cameras we catch a glimpse of their private and very public lives.

In a unique experiment the show is presented in ‘Theatrivision’, as Vegas and MIF team up with shopping channel Ideal World. Each performance, Vegas and his cast will be beamed live into the homes of Ideal World’s TV audience as actual shopping channel presenters selling products – live.

Audiences in the theatre will get to see both sides of these characters – their off air and their live personas. Audiences at home, watching the shopping channel, get the unexpected and entertaining experience of having Vegas and Fryer selling to them while Eldon multi-tasks as his on stage character as well as Ideal World’s ‘floor manager’.
