Eddy’s colourful television career includes the likes of Thin Blue Line, Casualty, Between The Lines, Silent Witness, Absolutely Fabulous and EastEnders – he was the vicious lout who turned over Frank Butcher’s car lot. He also played a major role as a gang member in the HBO movie The Infiltrator. But thanks to a fit body and a completely bald head – he started shaving it at the age of 24 – he found his roles were limited: “I was always a thug, a gay guy or a Hare Krishna,” Eddy says. Eddy Brimson has emerged to become one of the leading headline comics in British comedy and around the world. Specialising in what he describes as “observational filth”, Eddy Brimson is a regular at all the country’s leading venues and is a long-time friend and favourite of The Comedy Cabaret.
