An evening with Adrian Edmondson *** SOLD OUT ***
October 18 @ 20:00 – 22:00
As part of the 2023 Farsley Literature Festival we are excited to announce an evening with actor, comedian, musician, writer and television presenter Adrian Edmondson.
How did a child brought up in a strict Methodist household – and who spent his formative years incarcerated in repressive boarding schools – end up joining the comedy revolution? Could it be in his Scandinavian (… possibly berserker) heritage?
Discover the story behind Adrian Edmondson’s journey to comedy in this riotous evening of storytelling to celebrate the release of his upcoming memoir, Berserker!
Live on stage, Edmondson will take audiences from his days breaking the rules at his brutal boarding school to the comedy circuit of the eighties when he finally found his place in world. Edmondson will share previously unheard stories from his comedy partnership with Rik Mayall who together created iconic sitcoms such as The Young Ones and Bottom and brought anarchy and eccentricity to stage and screen.
Now a British comedy legend, Edmondson will look back on his life and answer your own burning questions. Expect star-studded anecdotes and healthy dose of nostalgia from an extraordinary, comedy-filled life effortlessly weaved together by Edmondson’s unique wit and gift for storytelling.
This event is part of 2023 Farsley Literature Festival.
Doors open at 7pm, event starts at 8pm.
