Brendon Burns: Mansplainin’
Venue: Heroes@The Criterion
WORLD PREMIERE BRAND NEW HOUR! Brendon Burns, host of the internationally acclaimed Dumb White Guy podcast, Edinburgh award winner and renowned berserker with terrible ideas has written A BRAND NEW HOUR ALREADY! Defending and redefining masculinity. But for festivals he's gonna pop on an oestrogen patch and reduce his testosterone levels to see if his stance changes at all over the course of the hour. Could be funny, could be a proper f***ing car crash where a shouty, testosterone-fuelled, swaggering, axe-wielding Aussie winds up in a crumpled mess blubbering and longing for that Pixar film that he lets himself cry at. "... You have only ever really toked on pure socio-political comedy. With Brendon you are mainlining… respect, sir. And not a little awe." ***** Kate Copstick, The Scotsman "A truly terrible idea, why must you always come up with things that are dangerous to your mental and physical health?" Brendon's manager, Andy Townsend, The Galton Agency. Warning!
