Reliably informed

Simon Munnery has long been established as one of comedy’s greatest secrets, once you know of him, you can’t escape. For over 35 years the comedy icon has been performing, inspiring and reinventing comedy across the globe, occasionally appearing on TV shows such as Stewart Lee’s Comedy Vehicle or The Alternative Comedy Experience. The comedian’s career has seen him take charge of acclaimed radio shows, TV series and a litany of brilliant and hilarious tours.

The alternative juggernaut has consistently delivered absurd, endearing and satirical shows for decades, yet these traits are never more refined than when he dons the leather jacket and confrontational swagger of his character Alan Parker: Urban Warrior.

Delivering scathing anarchism fuelled with retribution and disarray, this parody punk revolutionary has never been more needed. The rebellious voice of a generation has leant his penmanship to NME for years, but the notorious Urban Warrior is at his most untamed when unleashed on the stage.

Reaching Newcastle’s iconic venue The Stand on Monday 14th June, Alan Parker is set to become the antidote to a confused, restless political climate. The riotous renegade will deconstruct the wrongs of our world, proving unquestionably that he is the world’s only radical and that our nation needs to hear his truths.

Munnery perfectly mocks and respects activism and correctness in this volcanic and satirical masterclass in character comedy.
