Video: Before He Was A Bit Famous – Michael Legge Advertises Tandy

We've all got skeletons in the cupboard. Things we've done for cold hard cash when times were hard. Comedian Michael Legge is no expection. Before he became an angry stand-up comedian he did some television ads. One that has recently surfaced features Legge advertising electronics shop Tandy. In the advert a smiling Legge with a bowlcut coiffure pops up around the shop smiling and encouraging people to buy things like mini-TVs and radio alarms. The one saving grace may be that he doesn't have any lines...

Edinburgh Fringe Review: Michael Legge, The Stand


I had a bad feeling about this gig. Excitable Facebook recommendations from friends of the performer never work for me even if they declare an interest and Legge had an armful of them. But anyway, you’ve already seen the stars at the top of this review so you know I’m about to recommend Tell It Like It Is, Steve*. And I’m definitely not a friend of that stupid vegan twat Michael Legge.


Interview: Rarely Asked Questions – Michael Legge

Irishman Michael Legge is a riddle trapped inside an enigma. Or something. He does his own stupid shows, he also does angry stupid shows with library-on-legs Robin Ince. He can also get into a right out lather about the state of the nation, feminism and Andrew Lawrence. Sometimes it is hard to see the difference between Legge being serious and Legge being off his trolley. It doesn’t really matter though because whatever he is saying it is shot through with an appealing daft humour.
