Hey Fat Roland! Forty Minutes of Idiot
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Spoken word behemoth Fat Roland mixes deadpan comedy and surreal stories with wonderfully odd illustrations. Imagine Johnny Vegas devouring Stewart Lee. On a depressed rollercoaster. Driven by a buffalo. Fats runs Bad Language in Manchester (best UK spoken word night, Saboteur Awards 2015) and is a columnist for Electronic Sound. This mini-show to support his new podcast Hey Fat Roland (which hell probably forget to mention) is a follow-up to his debut Fringe show, Kraftwerk Badger Spaceship, which BroadwayBaby.com called: often hilarious... superbly executed... a seriously excellent piece of music-based comedy.
