  MARTIN SOAN
BIOGRAPHY

Garlanded with awards and media accolades, Martin Soan continues to plough his own path. A key player in the alternative comedy scene of the 80s which spawned an anarchic new breed of performer and inspired the likes of Stewart Lee and Vic Reeves to pick up a mic, Martin co-founded the infamous Greatest Show On Legs with the late Malcolm Hardee. Originally a pornographic Punch and Judy, the Greatest Show On Legs shot to fame when their intricate balloon dance was performed on Chris Tarrant's OTT.

Unsurprisingly, Martin's zany unpredictability has proved hugely popular on kids and variety TV. His UK broadcast appearances are as diverse as Cilla Black's Surprise! Surprise! and Jools Holland's The Tube, by way of Blackadder and The Last Resort.

As a youthful TimeOut Award Winner (in 1991 alongside Eddie Izzard) and middle-aged Perrier Award nominee, Martin continues to thrive in front of contemporary live comedy crowds. Hugely respected by current pioneers of unconventional comedy, Martin has appeared live at Ian Cognito's Club Cognito, Boothby Graffoe's Club Boothby and the Simon Munnery-curated Hootenanny Sunday. A festival favourite, Martin has recently wowed the crowds at Lewisham Comedy Festival and the Magners Glasgow International Comedy Festival.

With 30 years of performing under his belt, Soan Alone is Martin Soan's long overdue solo show.
