How much of a man are you?

Mr Brightside is about to find out. And he’s hoping you will help…

You are one of the studio audience as Mr Brightside hosts his TV variety game show. But mistakes from his past and difficult encounters backstage make him wonder whether he should be in this absurd show anymore.

An impeccably dressed cocktail of clown, verbatim and movement, Mr Brightside takes a cutting look at what it means to be a man and asks: where do we go from here?

This brand new show has been created following free workshops in Croydon with members of the public, and featuring verbatim recordings from interviews with people from different backgrounds, gender-identity, race and age.

"Nick Gilbert mesmerises... portraying a clever microcosm of life" - Broadway Baby for Zoo Co’s Giant.

"[Nick Gilbert] is sharp and utterly hilarious throughout" - Exeunt Magazine for Zoo Co’s Giant.

The Finding Man Project presents Mr Brightside, produced in association with Zoo Co.
