Simon Munnery: Alan Parker Urban Warrior Farewell Tour

The comedian reprises his notorious alter ego, bedsit anarchist Alan Parker Urban Warrior.

Once the most radical, now the only radical, Alan returns with the old gold, the old truths, and some new truths (based on the old truths).

For over 35 years, Munnery has performed around the world, experimenting with and innovating the stand-up form.

In the 1990s, his Alan Parker Urban Warrior character took the comedy circuit by storm, garnering Munnery his own BBC Radio 1 series, which Time Out called ‘the funniest thing on Radio 1’, and a residency on ITV’s Saturday Live.

In 1996, Munnery collaborated with Graham Linehan and Stewart Lee for the BBC2 show London Shouting, in his Alan Parker guise, and the character also became a regular contributor to NME.

Munnery is a British Comedy Award nominee, Perrier Award nominee, Sony Radio Award winner and Chortle Award winner.

He’s most recently appeared in Channel 4’s acclaimed Flowers, and appears in Will Sharpe’s Louis Wain movie biopic, co-starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Claire Foy.

Stewart Lee described ‘Munnery’s parody of a punk rock anarcho snowflake, hand drawn with real love for its subject, returns to a world worse than any he could have imagined in his home decade of the 1980s.’
