After being kicked out of the Royal Shakespeare Company, Garry Starr wants to show the world he is still a master. And so he's going to do the impossible and perform every genre of theatre in an hour.

Starr gives a sketch comedy tour through the different styles of performance. He uses singing, dancing, acrobatics and mime to both mock and demonstrate the key ideas of all types of theatre. From well known genres to the more alternative, Starr does seem to perform everything – and does so well.

The parody comes from his genuine understanding of the inner workings of performance; bringing out the absurdity of the piece while remaining convincing that this is close to the genuine article. A little prior knowledge about theatre is probably required for the full experience. But, a novice would still find many aspects of the show funny and enjoy Starr's impressive feats and acting ability.
