Clive Anderson: Me, Macbeth & I to tour UK

Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

FOLLOWING a sell out run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August, Clive Anderson is bringing his first solo show Me, Macbeth & I to venues across the UK this coming spring.

Me, Macbeth & I is a one-man stage show guaranteed to be funnier than Shakespeare’s greatest tragedy, more historically accurate than 24 hours of fake news, less divisive than Brexit, Scottish Independence and Donald Trump put together.

An award-winning and versatile broadcaster and comedy writer, Anderson’s success began during his 15-year legal career with stand-up comedy and script writing, before rising to fame as the host of Whose Line Is It Anyway? on radio and then television and winning the 1991 British Comedy Award.

Anderson fronted ten series of Clive Anderson Talks Back on Channel 4 and four series of Clive Anderson All Talk on BBC 1. As well as presenting several other TV and radio programmes, he has made many guest appearances on shows such as Have I Got News For You, QI, Mock the Week, Countdown and Fighting Talk.

He has also fronted other programmes covering current affairs, sport, science, history, music, art and literature, including this year, Mystic Britain now on the Smithsonian Channel. He currently presents Loose Ends and Unreliable Evidence (both BBC Radio 4).

Anderson has hosted any number of live events and award ceremonies for BAFTA, London Evening Standard, Chortle and the Olivier Awards in London and overseas.

He hosted Whose Line Is It Anyway?… Live, the official world première, at the Adelphi Theatre in London in 2015. Due to popular demand, the sold-out show returned to the London Palladium for a limited run in 2016 and again to the Royal Albert Hall in December 2018 to celebrate its 30th birthday with an exclusive run of three live festive shows. This year, he is presenting the latest Edinburgh version of Whose Line? at the McEwan Hall.

The tour opens at the Artrix Theatre, Bromsgrove on March 13, 2020, before continuing to Peterborough, Bridport, Farnham, Launceston, Bridgwater, Winchester, Milton Keynes, Chipping Norton, Bradford-Upon-Avon, Maidenhead, Epsom, Hereford, Evesham, Radlett, Leicester, Liverpool and Salford (May 24).
