Brian Gorman - One-Man Bond on Friday 5th July 2019
ONE MAN BOND: Every Bond Film In 60 Minutes
**Winner of the 2018 Salford Star Award for 'Best Performer' (Brian Gorman)**
'One Man Bond: Every Bond Movie In 60 Minutes' chronicles over half a century of the most successful movie franchise in history.
The show was recently staged at the world famous Pinewood Studios (home of the Bond movies), and the 2018 Starburst Media City Festival in Salford.
'One Man Bond: Every Bond Film In 60 Minutes' is written by, and stars, Brian Gorman as over 150 characters, including every James Bond from Sean Connery to Daniel Craig, plus M, Moneypenny, Q, and the infamous villains Dr No, Goldfinger, Blofeld, Mr Big, Scaramanga, Jaws, and Raul Silva. It is a whirlwind tour of every cinematic adventure of the world's favourite secret agent, and his often outlandish missions to save the world time and time again.
This unique production features a single actor, without elaborate props, costumes, or special effects, and takes the audience from the groovy, psychedelic sixties of the super smooth Sean Connery, through to the modern day bone-crunching, and ultra realistic, Daniel Craig.
Manchester-based Brian Gorman is a life-long Bond fan, having read all the Ian Fleming novels as a child in the 1970s, and seeing every movie dozens of times. He wrote, and co-produced, the highly-acclaimed stage play, 'NEW DAWN FADES: A Play About Joy Division & Manchester' which has toured nationally for the last 5 years, and played to capacity audiences and standing ovations.
Brian was born in Wigan, and studied for a degree in English and Art at Chester College in the 1990s; he then worked at the Chester Gateway Theatre for 12 years, and appeared on stage in a variety of productions including the hugely popular 'Bouncers'. He is also a writer/artist of graphic novels, his latest being 'NEW DAWN FADES: A Graphic Novel About Joy Division & Manchester', which has been both highly popular (now on its third print run) and critically acclaimed. Other books include'EVERYMAN: A Celebration of Patrick McGoohan & The Prisoner', which is based on his one man stage play.
Reviews for 'One Man Bond':
'An acting tour de force - brilliantly capturing the essence of each Bond actor and the non-PC absurdities of the Bond series. It's a show that definitely keeps the British end up!'
- Robert Sellers (Author of 'The Battle For Bond')
' ...in an electrifying way, Brian Gorman takes to the stage with real animation, not just imitating but in a way embodying every Bond character he takes on. Hilarious. From the Biff!, Biff!, Wallop! of the fight scenes through the clever characterisations and voices to the inevitable Boom!, Boom! explosions that ripped through the end of virtually every scene.'
- Louder Than War
'...What's important in a show like this is for all the characters to be distinct and recognisable; thankfully, Gorman is a skilled impressionist, getting the vocal tics of every Bond spot-on and even making us chuckle with his perfect capturing of Roger Moore's distinctive stance. His Christopher Walken is a treat. This is one fan's loving and hilarious tribute to the history of Bond movies'
- Starburst Magazine
'Brian performed to an audience of hardcore 007 fans at Pinewood Studios, and they were totally enthralled. Thoroughly recommended show.'
'Nobody does it better than Brian Gorman in 'One Man Bond'. Unmissable'
