What is currently on at The Tobacco Factory Theatres (V1384579886)


Lurching unsteadily offstage at a Liverpool working men s club - sweat, smoke and failure clinging to his faded 70s dinner suit - Jigsy is a journeyman variety comedian, struggling for survival in a changing world. The bright lights of television fame that boosted the careers of many of his contemporaries are flickering on a distant horizon. Talking directly to the audience, Jigsy revisits his childhood on the tough streets of Scotland road, years of grafting on the docks and on the dole, his showbiz break-through, and the struggle to beat the booze and make it to the top. Jigsy is a one-man play that gives an insight into the earthy heartland of Northern comedy and connects with the social history of Liverpool, the spirit of Scouse and the big questions. Life is hard, and then you die: "Still you have to laugh, don t you?"
