Hey Fat Roland! Forty Minutes of Idiot.

Show details

Spoken Word that will be performed at The Newsroom at 11:05am for 40 minutes, on the following days in August 2016.


Spoken word behemoth Fat Roland mixes deadpan comedy and surreal stories with wonderfully odd illustrations. Imagine Johnny Vegas devouring Stewart Lee. On a depressed rollercoaster. Driven by a buffalo. Fats runs Bad Language in Manchester (best UK spoken word night, Saboteur Awards 2015) and is a columnist for Electronic Sound. This mini-show to support his new podcast Hey Fat Roland (which he'll probably forget to mention) is a follow-up to his debut Fringe show, Kraftwerk Badger Spaceship, which called: 'often hilarious... superbly executed... a seriously excellent piece of music-based comedy'.
