Half the Man – Michael Livesley

Half the Man – Michael Livesley

Show type: Edinburgh Fringe 2019

After losing half his body weight, Michael Livesley is half the man he was. Raised in an all-female household with Stan Ogden his only male role model, he grew up into an obese, miserable recluse bouncing from crisis to crisis like a fart in a colander. Then he decided to change. The spiral of anxiety and addiction can be fatal, but to unravel it Michael has had to pick himself apart from the roots up. A hilarious and poignant voyage through his life's peaks, troughs and ultimate redemption. 'An outrageous talent' (Stephen Fry).
