CANCELLED Rory McGrath: REMEMBERS (… OR IS IT FORGETS?)
RORY McGRATH: REMEMBERS (… OR IS IT FORGETS?)
Rory McGrath Remembers (…Or Is It Forgets) sees Rory looking back over his life and wondering if he can remember any of it… If not he’ll make it up. From his birth in a lowly stable in Bethlehem to his Nobel Prize for Chemistry, there’s nothing he’s not prepared to bullshit about.
With stories taken from his childhood, time as a builder’s labourer, and his career as a writer and TV presenter, as well as his love life, his obsession with football and ‘Milkshake’ by Kelis, Rory’s show will lift the lid on his innermost thoughts and memories. The show is pure stand-up joy except for the bits when he’s sitting down, shining his unique comic torch into the murky corners of his life and times and unearthing some astonishing things, including a half-eaten Twix and an out-of-date Oyster-card. *
Rory McGrath wrote and starred in Channel 4’s hit sketch show Who Dares Wins, as well as starring as a permanent panellist on BBC One’s They Think It’s All Over for over a decade. He then went on to star in seven series of the hilarious documentary series Three Men in a Boat alongside Griff Rhys Jones and Dara O’Briain and the Channel 5 show Rory and Paddy’s Great Adventure alongside Paddy McGuiness.
As well as his extensive TV credits Rory has honed his comedy skills as a radio star and producer. He wrote and starred in the BBC Radio 4 series Injury Time as well as working as an in house writer for the likes of Peter Cook, Frankie Howered and Alfred Marks, among many others. He is also the co-founder of Hat-Trick productions, responsible for legendary TV shows including Have I Got News For You, Whose Line is it Anyway and Father Ted.
