Jim Tavaré

In 2017 comedian, BAFTA award winner, Harry Potter actor and double bassist Jim Tavaré was involved in a near fatal head-on automobile collision in Los Angeles CA.  He lived to tell the tale.

Directed by Henry Normal, In 2018 Jim returned to the Edinburgh Fringe for the first time in 20 years with his first narrative show 'From Deadpan to Bedpan'. He tells the stroy of how a quick trip to the shops changed his life forever.

The show is a heartwarming and seriously funny tale of survival against the odd, strange forebodings, unbelievably massive American medical bills, the great NHS, and a dog called Mr Kippy.

After suffering catastrophic injuries (over 30 broken bones, including 14 broken ribs, collapsed lungs, multiple fractures, broken neck and a hand that detached from the wrist) that left him in intensive care on life-support, he spent the next year in recovery facing an uncertain future. But instead of letting trauma define him, he emerges with a brand new show.

To much acclaim, this show won 'Spirit of the Fringe Award' at the Edinburgh Fringe 2018.
