PRESS RELEASE FOR GET FIT WITH BRUCE WILLIS:
For immediate use
Get Fit With Bruce Willis
or – How Jimmy Somerville Saved My Life
by Chris Brannick
Disco flirts with Die Hard in new comedy drama
An ageing Jimmy Somerville impersonator sells his soul to the devil – in the shape of a Yorkshire granny – in return for fame, sex and money. But his wife, tired of being ignored, is finding love & lust in the arms of a hunky office junior. Desperate for success, he gives himself a week to get fit like Bruce Willis.
In the end he realises he has to stand up for himself, with the help of Jimmy Somerville and Doctor Seuss.
A comedy about disco and happiness, featuring the songs of Jimmy Somerville.
Appearing together are award-winning playwright Chris Brannick – a man with the looks and the voice of Jimmy Somerville – and Karen Kirkup who plays 5 different characters, often at the same time.
Suitable for all the family but some mild sexual references and occasional mild swearing.
Get Fit With Bruce Willis premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2016 and has been performed at the Brighton Fringe and at London’s Canal Café Theatre. TwoFoolish Productions create and perform quirky theatre inspired by the music of the 80s, exploring the frustrations of finding yourself lost in a changing world. They hope to tour at rural and local venues around the UK.
