The Twinkie Defence
In 2008 comedian Simon Keck committed suicide.
It didn’t take.
More interesting than the question 'why do people kill themselves?' is 'what happens when they survive?'
This is the tale of a comedian who lost all hope and humor, only to find both in that fleeting moment between life and death.
Also, it has fridge magnets.http://www.simonkeck.com/
A BRILLIANT word-smith... This is a BRILLIANT show
A powerful, intelligent and very, very funny show. Go see it. It’s worth it.
I can’t remember the last time I left a comedy show with warmth in my heart, tears in my eyes and a mind buzzing with the kind of evocative images that can only be conjured up by strong, clever, considered writing.
You should go out of your way to see it. It deserves to be seen, it needs to be seen. It is that powerful a performance.
★★★★ - It's a show that certainly pushes the boundaries of what you'd expect at a standup gig and also a brilliant wake up call to the rest of the world.
There’s no disguising his abilities as a comedy writer here
