Michael Brandon - Off Ramps
[Off-ramp (n): North American ~ a one-way road leading off a main highway.]
On his journey from Brooklyn to Britain - via Hollywood - Michael Brandon has taken many off-ramps on the way. In this brilliant, funny and engaging show, he tells how he gave himself two years to star in a Hollywood movie. Still there after 50, he lifts the lid on a half-century of showbiz personalities from De Niro to Pacino, Tony Curtis to Kim Novak and his ex-wife, the Bionic Woman!
In the UK, Michael became a heart-throb as one half of the unlikely cop duo Dempsey and Makepeace that was so popular in the 80s, he was nominated for an Olivier as Best Actor in a Musical for the 2003 West End run of Jerry Springer The Opera and has recently starred in Captain America: The First Avenger, Tracey (Ullman) Breaks The News and Episodes.
Michael Brandon - Off Ramps was a hit at the 2017 Edinburgh Festival. With original footage and rare photographs, this freeway - with many off-ramps - is an hilarious evening of eye-widening Hollywood truths!
