‘Jimmy Mack Follies’ at Natural Food Kafe (Fringe Venue 415)

Award-winning artist, inventive writer and dry-witted scavenger poet with an appetite for absurdity, James Alexander McKenzie presents an unusual solo show that is a blend of theatre, spoken word and stand-up… 


Jimmy Mack Follies is a variety show with a focus on theatrical, deadpan spoken word performances.

Parodying alternative representations of masculinity, and drawing from an expansive pool of source material that includes his experience working as a barman, McKenzie’s offbeat line-up presents performances from…

𝘋𝘳 𝘑𝘰𝘤𝘬 𝘏𝘰𝘸𝘪𝘦 (a ridiculous barfly);

𝘙𝘰𝘮𝘦𝘰 (a self-deprecating, lamenting mess);

𝘈𝘪𝘳𝘱𝘰𝘳𝘵 𝘉𝘢𝘳𝘮𝘢𝘯 (a barman at a chaotic, nightmarish airport bar);

𝘎𝘳𝘪𝘮 𝘙𝘦𝘢𝘱𝘦𝘳 (a cloaked skeleton desperate to be assigned a different post);

𝘉𝘢𝘳𝘭𝘦𝘺 𝘚𝘩𝘪𝘬𝘢𝘴𝘬𝘪 (a caricature of controversial poet Charles Bukowski).

These acts are threaded together by McKenzie acting as…

𝘔𝘢𝘴𝘵𝘦𝘳 𝘰𝘧 𝘊𝘦𝘳𝘦𝘮𝘰𝘯𝘪𝘦𝘴.

Jimmy Mack Follies is a wry, provocative, philosophical, comical and surreal one-man multi-act.
