Lee Kyle Disco Twix - Stand up special Press Release

Lee Kyle Disco Twix – Stand up special Press Release

A show about gender, oddness and, if there’s time, class war.

One day, Lee was sat in a Victorian cemetery at the end of his street, underneath a tree that he’d thrown 13 pairs of shoes into the branches of. Sat with him, was a woman who used to be in Byker Grove and between his knees was a guinea pig he accidentally owned.

It was then he accepted that he is probably a bit odd.

He’d been trying to hide his weirdness and flamboyance due to an incident in his childhood where he was whipped by a boy (Who had once burned down his own home) with liquorice laces for expressing an opinion on chocolate.

And anyway, he’s been told a lot of times that people like him (Straight, white, North Eastern, cis, man) need to speak up about the issues he believes in. So he has.

The show was filmed by Felt Nowt Productions CIC, the world’s only comedian led CIC co-op which supports comedians in the North East.

It was filmed at The Stand Comedy Club in Newcastle in November and is a four camera shoot.

Still not convinced? Don’t take his word for it, these folks have said nice things about him…
