For a man who can’t stop but talk on stage, Daniel Kitson is extremely media shy, or maybe I should say media uninterested. His representative in Sydney tells me in an email that, “Daniel is based in the UK and is not hugely keen on doing media interviews”. This is frustrating as, THE INTERMINABLE SUICIDE OF GREGORY CHURCH, is written and performed by Kitson and the introduction to his one-man show on the Seymour Centre website reads like a gripping teaser to a black comedy on stage. “Gregory had fifty-seven letters to write… He glanced at his watch and then at the noose hanging over his head… Had he known how long suicide letters take, he thought, he wouldn’t have cancelled the milk for the morning.” He is a multiple award winning stand-up comedian with a penchant for one-man theatre productions, a regular at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and Melbourne International Comedy Festival and someone who probably doesn’t need to give an interview to fill a venue. As the great Ali G would say, restecp!
