An overzealous idiot attempts to perform all of Greek Mythology in order to save his Hellenic homeland from economic ruin. Never before has Medusa been looser, Achilles more sillies or Uranus so heinous.

Having single handedly saved the performing arts in 2018 with his multi-award-winning debut show Garry Starr Performs Everything, comic wunderkind Garry returns with another anarchic masterclass not to be mythed.

WINNER Pick of the Fringe – Adelaide Fringe 2022

WINNER Best Comedy – Manchester Fringe 2022
