The Elvis Dead with Rob Kemp

Clip recorded at Chortle's Fast Fringe

In his Edinburgh show, Rob Kemp re-enacts The Evil Dead 2 – as if Elvis Presley was in the lead role.

And in this extract, recorded at Chortle's Fast Fringe, the comic re-enacts one of the most gruesome scenes from the movie - when lead character Ash Williams takes a chainsaw to his own hand after it becomes all possessed by a demon.

All the while, he sings You Are Always On My Mind, with the lyrics changed to: 'Now I'm sawing off my hand'

Kemps's show. The Elvis Dead is on at Heroes @ Monkey Barrel at midnight and is one of the cult hits of the festival.
