Simon Munnery: Alan Parker Urban Warrior Farewell Tour

Once the most radical, now the only radical. The bedsit anarchist, Alan Parker Urban Warrior, returns with the old gold, the old truths, and some new truths (based on the old truths).

SIMON MUNNERY reprises his legendary, cult comedy creation, Alan Parker Urban Warrior for this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

For over 35 years, Munnery has performed around the world, experimenting with and innovating the stand-up form. In the 1990s, his Alan Parker: Urban Warrior character took the comedy circuit by storm, garnering Munnery his own BBC Radio 1 series (29 Minutes of Truth), which Time Out called ‘the funniest thing on Radio One’ and a residency on ITV’s Saturday Live. 1996 saw him collaborate with Graham Linehan and Stewart Lee for BBC2 show, London Shouting, in his Alan Parker guise, and the character also become a regular contributor to NME magazine.

‘Gloriously inept radical anorak’ (The Times). ‘Marx, Engles and Sid Vicious would all have died laughing’ (The Guardian).
