Old Git - It's a Con!

Old Git (Jim Bryce) has had enough! Having inhabited his increasingly wizened body for 74 years, he is fed up wading through lies, muddle-headed theories and (dancing to) the discordant tunes of others.

Now, in 55 short minutes (but who’s counting?) Old Git explores the factors that make us what we are.

From the first bemused cell flapping about in the womb to wars, philosophies, Government promises, and notional national identity, Old Git presents an evening of riotous comedy, wit and insight, spiked with the occasional mad song.

Jim Bryce is an actor, songwriter, clown, improviser, meditator and standup, and hater of labels. Old Git is his altered ego, one of inner demons, angels, and other personalities, most of whom you’ll know from personal experience.

The work of someone with a clear vision... the ideas come thick and fast. Out of the bedroom

HIs music: Intelligent, thought-provoking... If we'd known him for the last 20 or 30 years he'd sell bushels of CDs MGCK

Bryce admits to being a musical tart. Fruitcake may be more appropriate.(Glasgow Herald)
