LIVE SURREAL COMEDIAN RORY MULLEN AT CAUSTIC COASTAL SALFORD
 

Star date: 14th April 2018

'EXPECT THE SURREAL...EXPECT THE THEATRICAL...MAYBE EVEN EXPECT THE COMEDIC...'

A Field of Hand Painted Grass
Friday 27th April
Caustic Coastal £2.73

It's billed as 'a live comedy show' by Rory Mullen and Ric Stringer but expect much more; and much less. The reviews have been astounding... "He's not that funny tbh" says some punter in the Salford Arms..."I wish he'd stop saying he's an artist" adds an angered local curator. Expect the ridiculous.

Not much you can say about Rory Mullen, except he seems off his head...but maybe, just maybe, there's a salient point behind it all. Who knows?

The reviews of Mullen's live show are stunning... "He's not that funny tbh" some punter in the Salford Arms..."I wish he'd stop saying he's an artist" angered local curator...

"Expect the surreal, expect the theatrical, maybe even expect the comedic" state the organisers of his Salford show at Caustic Coastal "Forget your Friday night art gazing, forget being cultured at the gal in your sharpest clobber, forget what you thought we do....Funnier than your one-liner artworks and not that funny instagram stories, funnier than Peter Kay and Dave Chapelle in a lift. You get the drift. What else are you gonna do at the end of April when the daffodils are all gone?..."

Mullen has tons of videos posted on his 'appreciation' website*, one which shows a weather man having a marital breakdown on air, another where he interviews a pea in a waste bin, and another 'live' from the snail racing championships complete with crap cardboard racetrack and interviews with the competitors. Very silly. Is it art? Is it comedy? Is it even surreal?

He can't be that out there can he? Find out when Rory Mullen performs live with Ric Stringer at the Caustic Coastal 'Fridge' gallery. There's only 75 tickets on sale, and it's only £2.73 entrance so book early!

DEMOLITION TEAM MOVES IN ON SALFORD DIRTY OLD TOWN GASWORKS

MORE HERITAGE TO DISAPPEAR AS EWAN MACCOLL GASWORKS DEMOLITION BEGINS

A demolition team has moved onto the site of Salford's iconic gasworks on Liverpool Street, made world famous by Ewan MacColl's Dirty Old Town anthem.

Ewan MacColl's wife and songwriting partner, Peggy Seeger, slated the 'land grabbing' move and proposed an alternative use that could be "somewhere unlike anywhere in the world" when news first broke of the demolition last year. This has been ignored  and now another slice of Salford's dwindling heritage is set to disappear...
