Stephen Garland - ‘The Post-Disposed’
This will be a sort of Homecoming for a show in which BCN played such a big part of. We are importing an Edinburgh Fringe Ticket called PWYW (Pay what you want!) where the fiver ensures your seat and helps pay for the venue. Expect big news on the night!!!
International comedy promoter Stephen Garland, arrives fresh from the Fringe with his sequel/conclusion to his well-received 2017 Comedy Storytelling Show ‘The Pre-Disposed’. Garland is responsible for most things involving professional English comedy in Spain since he produced the very first show in 2004.
Since then his Giggling Guiri Comedy club, festivals and club nights in Barcelona/Madrid/Marbella/Valencia have seen the very best from the British comedy circuit, everyone from Munnery to Izzard.
Affable Irishman Garland has performed, presented and produced over a couple of decades in Spain and elsewhere, even finding time to establish Rio’s only English language entertainment night out called Rio Night Live in 2014.
The ‘Post-Disposed’ frames the long trip from North East Brazil, via Rio, Madrid, Barcelona, Edinburgh, Longford to finally reach Moscow and the non FDA approved treatment that offered the only hope for his ‘No Treatment No Cure’ diagnosis.
It took some time to get this diagnosis of Primary Progressive MS that was evidently taking hold as Garland moved through the typical stages of increasing disability... with first a walking stick, to mobility scooter, with a wheelchair and cognitive collapse the next stop unless a Russian Doctor and his HSCT Stem Cell therapy could stop the ‘progress’.
9 months post Stem Cell transplant, this audio-visual comic retelling of a story framing the positive attitude that made light of adversity and with a background that allowed him to find the funny in the adversity.
The Post-Disposed is a show that promises to enlighten and
inspire as much as it will entertain.
