Just For Laughs Festival: Eddie The Eagle

Spend an hour with British Olympic legend

Just For Laughs Festival is a celebration of the best live music, theatre, comedy and family programs from around the world and here at home. Hosted in London, we have the perfect city for such a broad range of art to be both appreciated and enjoyed. Get ready for laughs, tears and a lot of incredible works from every genre imaginable. Eddie "The Eagle" Edwards is a unique British sporting hero with an incredible story to tell. Despite landing in last place at the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics, a short-sighted plasterer from Gloucester jumped straight into the hearts of the public. The Eagle Who Dared is a family-friendly autobiography live on stage, featuring never-before-told tales, a blizzard of hilarious anecdotes and a succession of soaring highs and bumpy landings: from Celebrity Squares to bankruptcy, through facial reconstruction and divorce to being affirmed as a national treasure and immortalised on the silver screen in a major feature film. His unique story of flying against-all-odds and turning failure into success shows what’s possible when you dare to follow your dream. Suitable for all ages. Runtime: 1 hour.
