It's not easy being a Michael Jackson mega-fan! Dan Wright's hilarious true story depicts how his 25-year long obsession with Jackson has deeply affected his life and relationships with everyone around him. In his first solo Edinburgh show Dan bears all about his obsession and how it shaped him as a person. Dan has followed his icon around the world, trying to persuade everyone in his way Michael Jackson is not the man the media has made out. Not only has it annoyed the hell out of his friends and family, now it's annoying him! So what should he do? Is it time to hang up his white glove for the last time and accept people's opinions or should he be proud and stand up for what he believes in?
