Carey Marx: The Afterwife
  • Edinburgh Fringe

As Carey's marriage crumbles, he swaps his wife for a guitar, elopes with it and writes songs about how he's definitely not having a midlife crisis. Soon, the relationship with his guitar becomes as complicated as the one with his wife. The guitar wants a divorce. In this savagely introspective show, Carey explores failure, disappointment, enthusiasm, and freedom. Writer and star of BBC Radio 4's Intensive Carey and twice winner of Best International Show at the New Zealand Comedy Festival. 'Anecdotally debauched' ***** (Herald). 'A comic at his gleeful best' ***** (Edinburgh Evening News).
