The Devil & Billy Markham

Epic Poem • Running Time: 60 mins
written by Shel Silverstein | performed by Graham Clarke
Facebook Event
Graham Clarke revives his award-winning performance of the late American author Shel Silverstein's epic one-man comedy poem. It is filled with a mixture of profanity and profound wisdom.

Billy Markham is an out of work blues singer. A boozer and loser, Billy is in a bar one evening where he is challenged to a game of dice by the Devil; the stakes are his soul. It kicks off a escalating game, taking the characters between Hell, Heaven and Nashville, and moving from hilarity to poignant drama. The text is a lively celebration of the English language.

“Clarke is a compelling, masterful and humorous story-teller… he holds the audience in his grip without a falter for an hour.” - Fiona Chisholm, Argus 2005
Graham Clarke won the FNB Vita award for best comedy performance in a one man show for this show in 1998.
