Edinburgh Preview: Marcus Brigstocke

Last time I saw Marcus Brigstocke in Edinburgh it nearly didn’t happen. He was demonstrating one of the moves he used to do as a dancer in his pre-stand-up days and he fell down and injured his leg. Like the trouper he is he carried on with crutches and even did more dancing at the end. That show was a personal one, in which Brigstocke put politics aside to talk about his time working on oil rigs, having an eating disorder and, erm, being a dancer. This year he has got back on the satire train in Why The Long Face?.
