Nearly Gay / Naked Racist is Phil’s debut DVD release – containing two full shows recorded at The Garrick Theatre, London on the back of his Edinburgh Comedy Award win (for The Naked Racist).
Phil says of the shows…
“Nearly Gay saw me move to the Stand Comedy Club and present the first of a trio of story-telling shows.
The show was an answer to an accusation of homophobia and a light-hearted look at the gay community from a straight man’s perspective.
Starting with an unsettling onstage interaction with gay San Franciscan comic Scott Capurro, I took the audience through a series of humorous anecdotes based around my experiences with my gay friends, gay Amsterdam and being snogged by my then girlfriend’s father (weird!) and ending with a broken penis in a hotel in Melbourne whilst avoiding the advances of hairstylist Stavros. Intrigued? You should be. ”
“The Naked Racist was my tribute to pacifism. It was the follow up to Nearly Gay and it recounted an incredible wonky night in Amsterdam which ended with full frontal nudity and a new perspective on racial harmony.
Again at the tiny Stand II, the show included a full metal band, The Shitsticks, that included Ossian Richie, Richard Creek and my soundman Jerry Sousa and a group of hippie dancers made up of Pappy’s Fun Club, Phil Kay, Janice Phayre and whoever else we could convince to dance naked at the end of the show in the name of peace.
This show was absolutely brilliant fun and ended up being chosen for The annual Edinburgh Comedy Award. ”
You can now get both shows on a single DVD…
