An Evening with… Murray Lachlan Young - Friday 25th November - Manaton Parish Hall

Friday 25th November 2016
An evening of satirical soliloquy, rock-n-roll reverie and devastating-ditty as BBC 6 Music’s resident poet presents his stunning new live, up-close and personal show. A delightful and satirical romp into the bizarre facets of fame, fashion, people, politics, a mild erotic folk ballad and the space-time continuum. This is unique stand up poetry/spoken word performance, from one of the very best in the business.
Acclaimed playwright, actor, screen-writer and poet-extraordinaire, Murray is celebrated for his hybrid mix of stand-up comedy with delightful commentaries on the bizarreness of contemporary life. Expect flamboyant, punchy wit, brooding subtext and empathetic humour.
Mick Jagger recently presented Keith Richards with a CD copy of Murray’s poems, marking the anniversary of Keith falling out of a coconut tree.
