Nottingham comedian Ben Macpherson took his first solo show, The Fall of Byron Montrose Poet Gentleman Lover, to Edinburgh last year and, impressively, it was a sell-out.
Macpherson tells the story of Byron Montrose, lover of ladies and laudanam. Through the medium of puns, poetry and prose, spend an hour with Montrose as he takes you on a tour around the opium-fuelled hotspots of 19th century Europe.
“Like a Spike Milligan book … Delightfully different” (Notts Comedy Review), this is bad Byron in breeches, the disgraced lovechild of Milton Jones and Blackadder.
The Fall of Byron Montrose Poet Gentleman Lover is at Upstairs at the Western on Friday 23 February 2018.
