From Deadpan to Bedpan: Jim Tavaré is coming to MAC Birmingham
Comedy fans will be delighted to know that Jim Tavaré is coming to MAC on Friday 17 May
In 2017 comedian, BAFTA award winner, Harry Potter actor and double bassist Jim Tavaré barely survived a near-fatal, head-on car crash in Los Angeles. He lived to tell the tale…
In 2018 Jim returned to the Edinburgh Fringe for the first time in 20 years with his show, ‘From Deadpan to Bedpan’. He tells the true story of how a quick trip to the shops changed his life forever. The show is a heartwarming and seriously funny tale of survival against the odds, strange forebodings, unbelievable American medical bills, and a dog called Mr Kippy.
To much acclaim, this show won ‘Spirit of the Fringe Award’ at the Edinburgh Fringe 2018.
After suffering catastrophic injuries that left him in intensive care on life support (over 30 broken bones including 14 broken ribs, collapsed lungs, multiple fractures to his leg, a broken neck and a hand that detached from the wrist), he spent the next year in recovery. But instead of letting trauma define him, he emerged inspired with a brand new show.
