Variety starring Ali Brice.
327: Heroes @ The SpiegelYurt
This show operates under the Pay What You Want (PWYW) model. To guarantee entry, buy a ticket in advance. Ticket-holders will be seated first. Any empty seats will then be filled from the free queue and audiences asked to leave a donation at the end.
Having spent time in a wheelie bin (for warmth, obviously), Ali's mind has been wandering and wondering. Brice has tried to throw a lot away - including himself. All he knows is he doesn't want to be in a bin again. Ever. How's he coping with his second chance at life? 'I've made mistakes - all of them involved missing Ali Brice's shows' (A kingly tit). 'Joyously bonkers' **** (Chortle.co.uk). 'A hidden gem of an hour' **** (Skinny). 'Completely bizarre. Deadpan! Totally off-the-wall' **** (ThreeWeeks). 'A twinkle-eyed comedy natural' ***** (ShortCom.co.uk). 'Side-splittingly comical' ***** (TheUpcoming.co.uk).

About the show
After a turbulent year of choices that couldn't be unmade, and drinks that couldn't be undrunk, Ali Brice decided to start living the life he wanted, to be the change he wanted to see in his world. But six months later Ali is in his pants and in a bin. He's on his own, but Ali's rarely stumped for company. Join him for his sixth show of whip-sharp crowd work, charming storytelling alongside his trademark absurd characters.
Star of stage and screen, his credits include Four Weddings And A Funeral, Midsomer Murders and this season's Monzo advert (he is the man in a kaftan).
Directed by Jonny Freeman.
On his return to the Fringe, Ali says: "This is my tenth fringe. I've finally done some soul searching, so I got in a bin... where I found all my flyers."
