The Man Called Monkhouse

The Man Called Monkhouse

Show type: Edinburgh Fringe 2015

Alone in his cramped study among thousands of show business artefacts, film stock and memories, the comedian's comedian ponders his life. The technician. The obsessive. The smile. The tan. The cuff. The wink. The sincerity of the man called Bob Monkhouse. Alex Lowe writes and Bob Golding directs Simon Cartwright in the part he was born to play. What happens when the unique handwritten joke books are stolen? This new solo play is a hilarious and poignant delve into the life of one of this country's best loved and possibly most misunderstood comedians.
