MARKUS Birdman, a veteran of Glastonbury Festival and the Edinburgh Fringe, stars at the Lyme Regis Comedy Club on Friday 19th January, in a line-up that also includes Burt Williamson and the regular host, Tom Glover.
As one of the most sought after acts on the comedy circuit, Birdman headlines at all the major comedy venues and has performed extensively throughout the UK and internationally. He is one of stand-up’s most well-travelled comedians, much in demand in the UK and all over the world.
After attending several art schools and even managing to graduate from one, Markus became a graffiti artist, muralist and performance poet. He was the Glastonbury Festival Poetry Slam Champion but he can’t remember which year, because, he says, he was fairly out of it.
He went on to be one of the first British comics to have his own Netflix Special – Live in Amsterdam.
He has written and performed 13 Edinburgh Festival solo shows and toured Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, India, Pakistan, Iraq, Scandinavia and throughout Europe, the Middle East and Far East. He has also appeared on numerous TV and radio shows both in the UK and abroad, most recently reaching the live finals of Britain’s Got Talent.
