ONE MAN BOND: Every Bond Film In 60 Minutes

UK TOUR 2018


2018 Greater Manchester Fringe Festival Award Nominee.


'One Man Bond: Every Bond Movie In 60 Minutes', which chronicles over half a century of the most successful movie franchise in history, is touring the UK this year.  
The show was recently staged in Manchester, Chester, Oldham, Blackpool, the world famous Pinewood Studios (home of the Bond movies), and at the 2018 Starburst Media City Festival in Salford.  
  

'One Man Bond: Every Bond Film In 60 Minutes' is written by, and stars, Brian Gorman as over 200 characters, including every James Bond from Sean Connery to Daniel Craig, including M, Moneypenny, Q, and the infamous villains Dr No, Goldfinger, Blofeld, Mr Big, Scaramanga, Jaws, and Raul Silva. It is a whirlwind tour of every cinematic adventure of the world's favourite secret agent, and his often outlandish missions to save the world time and time again.  This unique production features a single actor, without elaborate props, costumes, or special effects, and takes the audience from the groovy, psychedelic sixties of the super smooth Sean Connery, through to the modern day bone-crunching, and ultra realistic, Daniel Craig. 

What The Critics Say

  "An acting tour de force - brilliantly capturing the essence of each Bond actor and the non-PC absurdities of the Bond series. It's a show that definitely keeps the British end up!" 

   - Robert Sellers (Author of 'The Battle For Bond') 


  “ …in an electrifying way, Brian Gorman takes to the stage with real animation, not just imitating but in a way embodying every Bond character he takes on. Hilarious! "

- Emily Oldfield, Louder Than War


" What’s important in a show like this is for all the characters to be distinct and recognisable; thankfully, Gorman is a skilled impressionist, getting the vocal tics of every Bond spot-on." 

- Starburst Magazine


"Thoroughly recommended show."

- Robert Sellers (Author of 'The Battle For Bond') 




 “ …in an electrifying way, Brian Gorman takes to the stage with real animation, not just imitating but in a way embodying every Bond character he takes on. Hilarious. From the Biff!, Biff!, Wallop! of the fight scenes through the clever characterisations and voices to the inevitable Boom!, Boom! explosions that ripped through the end of virtually every scene. 

- Emily Oldfield, Louder Than War

 “...What’s important in a show like this is for all the characters to be distinct and recognisable; thankfully, Gorman is a skilled impressionist, getting the vocal tics of every Bond spot-on and even making us chuckle with his perfect capturing of Roger Moore’s distinctive stance. His Christopher Walken is a treat. This is one fan’s loving and hilarious tribute to the history of Bond movies”

"Clearly a lot of effort has gone into capturing the mannerisms of so many characters and the constant split-second changing of voice and expression are impressive. To those of us who really know our Bonds, some renditions are quite brilliant.

One Man Bond is a very funny show, performed with real feeling and attention to detail. "

“Brian performed to an audience of hardcore 007 fans at Pinewood Studios, and they were totally enthralled. Thoroughly recommended show.”
