Don't know your EI from your elbow? Raymond is here to help...
In this brand new solo show for 2007, acclaimed comedian, compere and
actor Raymond Mearns will be asking you the big questions. Does the
world mystify you? Are you dumbfounded by the actions of others? Do
you have difficulty understanding your role in this world or
connecting with the people in it? And do you sometimes wish the ground
would open up and swallow you whole?
Well, Raymond is here to reassure you with the news that you are
perfectly normal and it's the rest of the world that's mad. A man
beset by a curious natural immaturity, the master of the shaggy dog
story will be recounting his hilarious personal journey through
adulthood, parenthood, career and everywhere else in between.
In his own inimitable style, he'll be addressing the ups and downs of
a man's persistent failure to act his age and the pitfalls encountered
in the quest to develop what the gurus call EI (that's Emotional
Intelligence to you).
As one of the foremost exponents of anecdotal comedy in the business,
Raymond's quick witted comedic mind allows him to connect instantly
with his audience. Whilst constantly riffing and improvising around
his own material, Raymond never deserts the strongly narrative-driven
core of his set.
Told with great passion and empathy, the solo comedy shows of Raymond
Mearns are rapidly gaining him the deserved reputation as a classic
entertainer. Raymond hopes Recovering Arsehole will make everybody
laugh at their own life and ultimately realise it's for living, not
