Event description
Part standup, part storytelling, honed to imperfection with 25 shows at the Edinburgh Fringe... "An outrageous talent.." Stephen Fry

About this Event

"An extraordinary performer" The Independent

"A comic tour-de-force" Mojo Magazine

"Brilliant! Beserk! Simply Wonderful!" The Guardian

Having dropped 10 stone in weight Michael is literally half the man he was a year ago... But how? And why? He has described the transition as being about "fear, fry-ups and freedom".

And for those who have been astounded and delighted catch his previous surreal multi-character stage performances in Vivian Stanshall's "Sir Henry At Rawlinson End", be astounded once more to experience this new, and very personal exploration of "manliness" complicated by a hefty amount of emotional baggage.

He's accomplished so much, but wasn't happy with his life. He'd take time out to do a show - Glastonbury, The Epstein in Liverpool, The Bloomsbury Theatre - sharing the stage with the likes of Rick Wakeman, Neil Innes, Stephen Fry - but then return to the comfort of his sofa, boxed sets of The Sweeney, comfort food, and ale.

August 2018: he decided to turn his life around, and also to turn the experience into a Fringe show. He started walking, going to the gym, changed his diet, faced his demons, and started writing.

August 2019: he embarked on 25 gigs in 25 nights, and 25 days of amending and re-writing...

As promised, he now brings his show to The Studio in his hometown of Widnes.

Actor, writer, musician, comedian...Michael Livesly is Half the Man, but twice as happy.

And yes, his Nan and his Mum would have been proud of him.
