Following the murder of his father, hard hitting and critically acclaimed northern comedian Chris McGlade is attempting to lay to rest the ghosts that have haunted him ever since. This show, whilst telling the story of his dad's horrific murder, is also a funny, sincere, un-PC, no holds barred and touching homage to the man who shaped his life and humour. 'This is weaponised comedy, locked and loaded. It is awesome' (Scotsman). 'Intense, unique show unlike anything else you'll see on the Fringe' **** (Bruce Dessau, Beyond the Joke).
