How Freakin' Zeitgeist Are You?
An evening of satirical soliloquy, rock-n-roll reverie and ditty as Murray Lachlan Young presents his stunning new live show exploring the zeitgeist in his own unique way. A delightful 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, broadcaster and poet-extraodinaire and celebrated for his hybrid mix of stand-up comedy with commentaries on the bizarreness of contemporary life, expect flamboyant, punchy wit, brooding subtext and empathetic humour .
Ignoring the boundaries between poetry, rock-n-roll and comedy, Murray Lachlan Young’s career has been a creative roller coaster ride across three decades - from becoming the first poet to sign a £1m record contract in the late ‘90’s to current poet in residence at BBC6 music, via regular at The Glastonbury Festival, Latitude, Port Eliot. Womad, No 6 Festival. Beautiful Days and many more.
