Garry Starr Performs Everything

Nothing​ ​is​ ​sacred​ ​this​ ​January​ ​as​ ​​Garry Starr ​tears​ ​through​ ​artistic​ ​genres​ ​with​ ​little regard​ ​for​ ​personal​ ​safety​ ​and​ ​even​ ​less​ ​regard​ ​for​ ​art.

Legendary​ ​comedy​ ​director​ ​Cal​ ​McCrystal​ ​(The​ ​Mighty​ ​Boosh,​ ​The​ ​Amazing​ ​Spider-Man​ ​2, One​ ​Man​ ​Two​ ​Guvnors,​ ​Paddington​ ​1​ ​&​ ​2)​ ​lends​ ​his​ ​hand​ ​to​ ​this​ ​hilarious​ ​physical​ ​comedy from​ ​​Plague​ of​ Idiots frontman​ ​Damien​ ​Warren-Smith​ ​(Law​ ​&​ ​Order,​ ​Love​ ​My​ ​Way,​ ​The Persuasionists).

Disgraced​ ​actor​ ​Garry​ ​Starr​ ​is​ ​going​ ​it​ ​alone.​ ​Following​ ​his​ ​recent​ ​dismissal​ ​from​ ​the​ ​Royal Shakespeare​ ​Company​ ​due​ ​to​ ​‘artistic​ ​differences’​ ​he​ ​is​ ​determined​ ​to​ ​defy​ ​his​ ​critics​ ​by breaking​ ​free​ ​from​ ​the​ ​constraints​ ​of​ ​classical​ ​theatre​ ​and​ ​performing​ ​every​ ​single​ ​genre​ ​of art​ ​in​ ​under​ ​60​ ​mins.

Warren-Smith​ ​was​ ​born​ ​in​ ​Inverness​ ​but​ ​grew​ ​up​ ​in​ ​the​ ​small​ ​Australian​ ​town​ ​of​ ​Cooma before​ ​studying​ ​acting​ ​at​ ​Actors​ ​Centre​ ​Australia​ ​in​ ​Sydney.​ ​Upon​ ​graduating​ ​he​ ​moved​ ​to London​ ​where​ ​he​ ​spent​ ​more​ ​than​ ​a​ ​decade​ ​working​ ​as​ ​an​ ​actor​ ​and​ ​deviser​ ​with companies​ ​such​ ​as​ ​Tall​ ​Stories,​ ​Hull​ ​Truck​ ​and​ ​Nottingham​ ​Playhouse.​ ​In​ ​2013​ ​he​ ​studied at​ ​École​ ​Philippe​ ​Gaulier​ ​in​ ​Paris​ ​before​ ​creating​ ​clown​ ​troupe​ ​​A​ Plague​ of​ Idiots​ ​who​ ​played festivals​ ​around​ ​the​ ​world​ ​from​ ​The​ ​Garden​ ​in​ ​Adelaide​ ​to​ ​the​ ​Gilded​ ​Balloon​ ​in​ ​Edinburgh. He​ ​then​ ​settled​ ​in​ ​Berlin​ ​where​ ​he​ ​trained​ ​in​ ​Corporeal​ ​Mime​ ​with​ ​the​ ​Atelier​ ​des​ ​Mime before​ ​combining​ ​his​ ​passion​ ​for​ ​physical​ ​comedy​ ​with​ ​his​ ​experience​ ​as​ ​a​ ​classical​ ​actor​ ​to create​ ​the​ ​​Bloody​ Bawdy​ Villains,​ ​bringing​ ​an​ ​absurdist​ ​twist​ ​to​ ​Shakespearean​ ​texts.​ ​During this​ ​time​ ​he​ ​launched​ ​the​ ​Berlin​ ​Fringe​ ​which​ ​is​ ​now​ ​entering​ ​its​ ​third​ ​year.
