Morecambe - The Man What Brought Us Sunshine
Bob Golding plays an affectionate, touching and surprisingly realistic role of Eric Morecambe in this remembrance play of the life and career of the famous comic. One would think pretending to be someone as famous as Eric Morecambe would be so difficult that it shouldn't even be attempted. Ten minutes in and you would believe you are seeing the man on stage giving it his all once again. The suit, the hair and the glasses.
Golding should be praised for not just acting the role very well but for the fact it is a one man show and he is talking for 95 minutes with all the paper bag, singalong, you can't see the join, tea Ern, Des O'Connor insults you can fit in. With all these famous jokes leaving the audience with warm nostalgia, he draws in on the darker, sadder story of Eric's life. From he and Ern's 'Running Wild' TV show being slated, to coal mining, to his parents dying to his heart attacks, it is the touching story of Eric's move from childhood to mature adulthood and knowing that even through the hardest times, Eric would always crack a joke.
The show was absolutely flawless. Golding acted every sound effect, every word, every pause to the second. There are some unexpected funny moments throughout the show but mentioning them here would ruin some neat little surprises.
Giving this show 4 stars would be an insult. It deserves every 5 star and 10/10 review it gets. And honestly, honestly, honestly do not listen to anyone who says the show is bad. It was a night of perfection in awe of what some would say a, if not, the most funniest man in our lifetime. And Golding did it perfectly.
The Durham audience got some sunshine. Make sure you get some too.
