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.
Garry Starr Performs Everything is his debut solo show.
