A riotously funny comedian BROADWAY BABY *****
A natural raconteur. Very, very funny. The most charming, happy and optimistic show youll see FRINGEGURU *****
Aidan Goatley is a brilliant raconteur with an utterly unique turn of phrase...His shows combine superb narrative drive, pathos, and emotional depth, but are also stunningly hilarious and leave audiences crying out for more COMEDY SHOWCASE
For some its football; for others its fishing. For Brighton comedian Aidan Goatley and his dad, however, father-son bonding reached its zenith in the noble art of watching films.
Not content with a mere one show this year, Goatley is back with two. The first, 10 Films With My Dad (which is now in its 4th year!), is Aidans exploration of how cinema was the primary and perhaps only? means of communication between his father and himself. From John Wayne to the advent of 3D, Goatley examines how cinema brought two gene-sharing boys together and invites audiences to do their own soul-searching in the process.
11 Films To Happiness sees movie buff Aidan trawl through his much-loved DVD stash in a quest to see if this collection or indeed anyone elses can bring true happiness. Can true celluloid nirvana be attained? What films, if any, can bring complete cinematic satisfaction? Along the way we will find out what connects Michael Caine to Aidans work ethic, why you should watch Bollywood superhero films and how Jason Statham can cure depression.
Aidan Goatley has been on the stand-up circuit for four years, caused in the main part by the realisation that hed better get round to doing something productive. He has written a book based on his first show, 10 Films With My Dad, and lives in Brighton with his wife, daughter and a fish called Barry.
