suggs - what a king cnut, a life in the realm of madness…

you are here: home > what's on > suggs - what a king cnut, a life in the realm of madness…

 



Due to huge popular demand, after his first tour-de-force, smash hit, one man show, ‘My Life Story’, Suggs is treading the boards again.

If the first show was about how on Earth he got there, Suggs: What a King Cnut is about the surprises that awaited him when he did.

Vertigo on the roof of Buckingham Palace. Nearly blowing the closing ceremony of the Olympics. Watching his underpants fall to earth on Bowie’s driveway.

Things have gone a smidge surreal since the Madness frontman was a twelve year old in shorts on the tough streets of North London.

Constantly expecting that inevitable tap on the shoulder to hear ‘what are you doing here, Sunshine?’ how have I got this far? he asks himself. In this business you can be washed up at any minute. How have I managed to get away with it for so long?

Fame is a tightrope and Suggs has fallen off many times.

But for all the near death experiences he takes great solace in the words of the Greek philosopher, Blondie:

‘the tide is high, but I’m holding on…’

Reviews from my Life Story:
