An Evening With Gary Starlight

"A masterclass of musical comedy...If you weren't a Gary guy or Gary girl before you will be soon.” ­
Nelson Mail

Singer/songwriter/entertainer/massage therapist Gary Starlight has had a tempestuous showbiz career. In An Evening with Gary Starlight, Gary recounts his life story and sings all of his “greatest hits” in an interactive performance where every autobiographical song is determined by the audience’s suggestions.

Hear about Gary’s highs and lows: from humble beginnings to superstardom; through number one hits to public meltdowns in a very special comeback concert where not even Gary knows where his story is going.

Veteran improviser, comedian and writer Jeff Clark has been a member of The Court Jesters for over twenty years, is a regular performer in Scared Scriptless and forms one half of musical comedy duo Bigger Than Beetles (featured in the 2014 World Buskers Festival). As Gary Starlight, Jeff incorporates the skills of musician Kris Finnerty and each show’s audience into a truly unique “one-night-only” experience where no two shows will be the same.

Originally commissioned by The Court Theatre, An Evening with Gary Starlight is a one-man (and a musician) improvised musical comedy that blends lightning-quick wit, storytelling skill and musical ability to create a show that’s half cabaret, half improv and wholly entertaining.
