THERE’S BEEN A LIFE - AN EVENING WITH ALEX NORTON

Harbour Arts Centre, Irvine

THERE’S BEEN A LIFE - AN EVENING WITH ALEX NORTON

Since his first tentative steps on stage, Alex Norton's career has been both highly colourful and eventful beyond his wildest dreams. His journey from the streets of Glasgow's notorious Gorbals to blockbuster Hollywood movies has rarely been smooth, but in a career spanning six decades he has pretty much seen it all - and done most of it.

He has worked with Billy Connolly, Dudley Moore, Rowan Atkinson, Johnny Depp and Clint Eastwood; appeared in iconic movies like Gregory's Girl, Local Hero and Braveheart and made an everlasting mark on British television as DCI Matt Burke in Taggart. Uproariously funny and highly entertaining, Alex Norton takes us on an irreverent journey behind the scenes of a showbiz life very well lived.

Tickets: £15/£13.

RUSSELL KANE

Gaiety Theatre, Ayr

RUSSELL KANE

Are you 16-years-old, yet feel 21? Are you 40, but tragically faking 25? Or maybe you’re full-on 80 years, with the heart of three oxen and the sex drive of a bonobo chimp. Don’t worry: this is normal. No-one is ever the ‘right’ age – it’s is the beauty and the curse of being a real person. In this brand new show, multi-award winning comedian, presenter, actor, author and scriptwriter Russell Kane unleashes another blisteringly-funny, award-winning stand-up performance about growing up and growing down.

14+ (Parental Guidance) Moderate language and adult content.

THE SLAB BOYS

Gaiety Theatre, Ayr

THE SLAB BOYS

Presented by The CompassByrne’s iconic comedy The Slab Boys. Set in 1957 it depicts the events of a single day in the ‘slab room’ of Stobo’s carpet factory in Paisley. It is here the slab boys mix the colours for the design department on marble slabs… as well as spending significant amounts of time lusting after Lucille (“every slab boy’s dream”), having sly fags, picking on uncool Hector and stealing from Sadie’s tea trolley!

Join in the hilarious and frantic adventures of Phil, an artist of great natural talent, son of demented Mrs McCann and his friend George ‘Spanky’ Farrell as they spend time grinding paints in the slab room while they dream of dressing up and having somewhere better to go.

Tickets: £8 – £16.
