Goods Shed – 15 September – Elvis McGonagall

7.30pm -9.30pm

Stand-up comedian, poet, armchair revolutionary and broadcaster, Elvis McGonagall resides at The Graceland Caravan Park somewhere in the middle of nowhere, where he scribbles verse whilst drinking Scotch, listening to Johnny Cash and throwing heavy objects at his portable telly.

Elvis is the 2006 World Slam Champion and compere of the Blue Suede Sporran Club. He performs at literary and music festivals, comedy clubs, pubs and dodgy dives up and down the country and abroad. He also performs with the kings of Caledonian skiffle, Dead Plants, as Elvis McGonagall & The Resurrectors, “an unholy marriage of radical stand-up poetry and shoutin’ punky hillbilly blues”.

Deftly witty and subversive but not afraid to be plain daft, Elvis has been spitting his scurrilous diatribes against the powers that be since 2003. And look at the state of the world now. So that’s 14 years of futile ranting.

Elvis McGonagall comes to the Goods Shed following an outstanding performance at this years Edinburgh Fringe!

Early Bird Tickets purchased in advance cost £10.50 from Tetbury Visitor Information Centre or online

On The Door On The Night will cost £12.50
