Victor Pope was born the son of a docker and a systems analyst in Middlesbrough (the least desirable place to live in the UK according to Location, Location, Location). His early ambitions were as a part time pub comedian and author, then actor, then rock and roll star. These days he's not too bothered as long as it involves showing off on stage somehow. He has performed as the lead in a number of plays including Azdak in the Caucasion Chalk Cirlce and Scagnerelle in Scagnerelle as well as collaberating in a number of self penned comedy sketches. Lately his emphasis has been largely on music, being the frontman of several bands right up until his latest outfit The Victor Pope Band who have been together for a year. With these bands and solo he has played all over Edinburgh and the UK appearing at the Wickerman, Jockstock, Linky Lea, Kijiji, Audiosoup, Northern Green Gathering and Thimble Berry festivals. However, he experimented again with comedy at the 2011 free fringe to some degree of success and the theatrical spark was re-ignited. After a couple of years break to gather fresh material and develop his stagecraft Victor is ready to return to the Fringe once more by popular demand. Hopefully his unique brand of self depricating humour, irreverent poetry and crude but effective songsmithery will warm your cockles.
