Tony Cowards: Festival of Football
Show type: Edinburgh Fringe 2007
Tony Cowards has two passions in life, football and comedy, which he effectively combines by being a lifelong supporter of his hometown football club, Ipswich Town.
‘Festival of Football’ is a semi-autobiographical stand up show examining the effect that football has had on his life and what it means to be a supporter in these days of Russian oil billionaires and American corporate takeovers. Is football still, as Karl Marx described it, the “Opium of the masses” or is it now the Bolivian marching powder of the prawn sandwich brigade?
