To those of you who don't see much comedy, you may not notice this particular gig. John Kearns has been on my wish list for a few years. His winning both Edinburgh main awards in successive years will probably never be matched. He is an extrordinary comedy talent. And The Elvis Dead is one of the most talked about shows this year having stormed two of the main prizes at the Leicester Comedy Festival. If you are looking for something outside of your normal comedy periphery, this could be a great bet for you.
The absurdist stand up comic and first ever winner of the Edinburgh Foster's Best Newcomer and Best Show Awards previews his latest work in progress.

Cult classic horror movie Evil Dead 2 reinterpreted through the songs of Elvis*.
Just once (so far) Bruce Campbell performed as Elvis in the ‘soul-stealing mummy in a nursing home’ movie, Bubba Ho-Tep.
On rare occasions, it has been remarked that Rob Kemp bears a passing resemblance to Bruce Campbell** (we’re not here to discuss the accuracy of this observation, just accept that it happened).
With enough regularity to consider it habit, Bruce Campbell has also appeared on-screen as Ash Williams in the Evil Dead movies (and TV show).
Every now and then, an idea will strike that will seem extremely absurd, and yet at the same time bizarrely fitting.
As such, the only logical thing to do is don a jumpsuit (blue and brown, naturally) and sing your way through as much of the plot as you can in an hour.
If this is a concept that you feel will keep you engaged for an hour, then it may be the show for you (JOIN US!)
If not, then it's probably best for both of us if you stay away (don't JOIN US!)
