On what is his last day on this earth, Chic Murray takes a musical look back at the ups and downs, triumphs and tragedies of his glittering, but tragically flawed career!

Chic Murray: A Funny Place For A Window

About Chic Murray: A Funny Place For A Window

The “Comedian’s Comedian” Chic Murray passed away in Edinburgh on the night of the 29th of January, 1985. In a career that had taken him from an engineer’s apprenticeship in Kincaid’s Shipyard, Greenock, to the top of the bill at The London Palladium, Chic was a complete one-off.

Warning! Some patrons might find scenes in the play seriously funny.

Ticket price includes a drink (beer, wine or soft drink) plus a pie or vegetarian quiche.
