Twat Out of Hell features comedian Gary G Knightley, as seen on Channel 4, BBC3 and the West End, performing his debut solo show.

MCA Finalist 2017 Gary G Knightley “Clever, Funny and in your face” (WRONG Comedy) brings you his debut hour about, well, him. In an ever evolving world it is getting harder and harder to say things without offending anybody. Join Knightley as he explores the topics we aren’t allowed an opinion on and the people who are off-limits.
Gary G Knightley wants to be good. He tries to do the right thing, but he has incessant need to antagonise and challenge people’s beliefs. Join this wannabe ally as he strives to be the best he can be without making people cry. With Meatloaf songs!
As seen on Channel 4, BBC3, the west end stage and above pubs the length and breadth of Britain, come watch this member of the liberal elite open up about the stresses that come with it.

News and Reviews for this Show

August 10, 2018  North East Theatre Guide
As we left Lee Kyle’s show the previous day, the imposing figure of Gary G Knightley had invited us to had straight back into the room to see his show but we had been up since silly o’clock and we needed food. We did, however catch his show on day 2 of our visit.

We love rock music and we love musicals so it is no surprise to discover that we’d find the show very funny. The Meatloaf element was short and to the point. The full room had a working knowledge of his greatest hits, when asked. I was going to go for Paradise By The Dashboard Light or Modern Girl but wasn’t asked.

In a room this small, the mic is more of a prop than a necessity but Gary can sing, he could belt them out if he wanted to. But this was about comedy and soon the focus moved to musicals. Given the theatrics of Meatloaf, there is plenty in common. Our wee-man was ready to give Avenue Q or Urinetown if asked about his favourite (I had explained to Gary at the start that he wouldn’t be the first to corrupt his poor young mind…he has witnessed it on stage before).

Funny and near the knuckle with some of the material, Gary isn’t nasty but he made full use of the adult vocabulary as we described the re-write of a number of shows. He worked the room very well indeed. He wanted a reaction and got one. A great start to day 2 of our EdFringe journey. Click Here
