Guy Masterson - Barking Mad!

Comedy / Comedy Theatre
Scaled bm1dogtitle adelaide 800x800

On a hovercraft, no one can hear you bark...

Adelaide favourite, Olivier Award winner & international actor/comedian, Guy Masterson known for his renowned production of 12 Angry Men & globally acclaimed for his extraordinary multi-award winning solo shows Under Milk Wood, Animal Farm & Shylock, now shares uproarious autobiographical tales of woe, a conniving dog and transcontinental marriage...

After falling desperately in love & wedding a gorgeous Parisian model, he acquired far more than he bargained for with her 12 year old and fiercely protective canine, which could not be abandoned in Paris; it came with the package... The next 6 years tested everything; marriage, career & sanity... And no-one is quite sure who came out on top. For dog lovers (or haters), comedy lovers, or just lovers... Hilarious, hysterical tales of marital rivalry!
