Frustrated by misuse of the word “literally”, Paul Parry is teaching everyone a lesson. He’s lost his marbles, gone to Hell and back, taught an old dog new tricks. Soon, he’ll be literally painting the town red.
The Literally comedy show is a “documentary comedy” show - the genre invented by the excellent Dave Gorman, and has had some great reviews whether I've performed it up at the Edinburgh Fringe, in London, or down here in sunny Bristol.
KATE COPSTICK, THE SCOTSMAN ****
“a lovely hour… Parry is an amiable stage presence, self-deprecating but smart. His mini-travelogue taking him from A to B by tandem was fascinating as well as funny. Parry’s point is a good one, cleverly and humorously made. "
THREE WEEKS – *****
“deadpan but wonderfully affable…… He may literally be one of the best new comedians at this year’s Fringe…. a delightfully original show.”
THE LIST – ****
“smart, dry humour and Viz-style subversive pedantry combine with his Gormanesque tales of an eccentric, unpredictable and far-flung journey just to prove a point.”
SCOTSGAY MAGAZINE ****
“The fact that everything is delivered in a very deadpan, unexcited manner adds significantly to the hilarity. If you want something really entertaining and different, hilarious and thought-provoking, which brings home the ridiculous ways we use language, get along to Paul Parry’s show. Strongly recommended!”
It's a constantly evolving show - so it's the same spine of the usual show, but with new material - including literally living the life of Riley, keeping up with the Joneses and more attempts at organising a piss up in a brewery.

Also - half prize for morris dancers and bee-keepers.
Because I would love there to be people there literally with bells on, and there's always a lot of buzz about these literally shows.
