Lee Martin for Gag Reflex in Association with Geoff Rowe presents

ROB KEMP: The Elvis Dead

at Various, throughout the UK

‘The Elvis Dead’ is an audio/visual mash-up concert show, telling the story of Evil Dead 2 through the classic songs of Elvis Presley, and a love letter to both. It’s a multi award winning Edinburgh Fringe cult hit.

“Twisted Genius” ★★★★ Sunday Times

“very funny” ★★★★★ Beyond The Joke

“Instant Fringe cult classic" ★★★★ The List

Every now and then an idea strikes that seems extremely absurd and yet at the same time bizarrely fitting. A tribute concert to the sequel to the ultimate in gruelling terror… and the King of Rock‘n’Roll is such an idea; incredibly original, brilliantly executed, and encapsulating the spirit that permeates the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. The Elvis Dead enthralled Deadheads and Gracelanders alike, winning over lovers of one, and haters of both. It was the late-night CULT HIT of the Fringe, with punters queuing round the block to nab a seat at the midnight show.

"like a one-man Rocky Horror Show"
– The Telegraph

 

In 2017 the show won both the ‘Best Show’ and ‘Best Musical’ award at the Leicester Comedy Festival, gained a ‘Best Newcomer’ nomination in the prestigeous lastminute.com Edinburgh Comedy Awards, and has been nominated at the 2018 Chortle Awards for ‘Best Newcomer’ and ‘Best Music/Variety’.

"THE cult hit of this year’s Edinburgh Fringe.. bloody good fun!"
– ★★★★Chortle

 

The multi-award winning comedy musical, the brain child of comedian Rob Kemp; where Cult classic horror movie Evil Dead 2 is reinterpreted through the songs of Elvis, in tribute to the terror filled sequel and the king of rock'n'roll himself.

Rev up the Delta and come on a trip to a cabin in the Tennessee backwoods via Graceland, to witness: Cult classic horror movie Evil Dead 2 reinterpreted through the songs of Elvis Presley.

"Kemp has an incredible voice. Many think they can do an Elvis impersonation but Kemp really can, belting out the tunes that oh so familiar baritone"
– ★★★★Fest

 

It's a delight that the show then made the journey south to London for a late-night weekend residence at the Soho Theatre, and retained its brio with audiences, extending its run after full houses. Its now touring at Festivals and venues nationwide.

"It’s a mind-bending, very funny and extraordinary performance - and you never stop laughing at the crazy juxtaposition of it all. It’s a glorious celebration both of horror movies and of Elvis Presley. It is totally ludicrous but somehow, wonderfully, it is all done with love"
– ★★★★★Beyond the Joke
