Comedian Carey Marx survived a heart attack, but not without some heart death. Well, they say follow your heart, and Carey helplessly did as his marriage, life and career started dying too. Not being the type to give up, Carey kept trying, until he became the type to give up. Soon, his heart became so weak he could not tell jokes without actually dying. Witness the survival of the unfittest and a story that comes straight from the remains of Carey's heart.

The Hero of the People
This year Carey turned 50. We fear our birthdays all year round and when they come we celebrate. We drink alcohol and eat cake, celebrating being alive by doing things that will speed up our deaths. A show about indulgence and like all fun things, it's probably not good for you. Through tales of an upside down birthday, bears that fall on foreigners, a stranger who made Carey watch her clean her ears out, temporary alien arm syndrome, and an obscenely sexual plane hijacking, Carey develops his new life Theory of Unimportance. In this search for humility, Marx discovers he's humbler than everybody else on this earth. A true hero of the people. Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Venue 276
