So Gotham Norton

Graham launches US assault

Graham Norton is to make his New York stage debut tonight.

The one-man shows, Red Handed, mark the next step in his attempt to crack the American market.

He is already known to viewers of the BBC's cable channel BBC America, which screens his Channel 4 talk show So Graham Norton.

The channel is backing Norton's off-Broadway shows at the Theatre at St Clements until Saturday 28 September.

However, the theatre describes the $30 shows as 'workshop' performances, and is not inviting the press to review them.

Publicity for the show describes 39-year-old Norton as "The man who put the 'out' in outrageous"

Norton follows other stars such as Dave Gorman, Bill Bailey and the League of Gentlemen, who have played the theatre's former home, Westbeth Theatre.
