Marcus Brigstocke injured while performing podium dance

Brigstocke is currently performing at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe

By • Scotland

Comedian Marcus Brigstocke ended up in A&E after recreating his time as a podium dancer for nightclub Ministry of Sound at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Only two days into his run at the Fringe, Brigstocke spent Saturday morning being treated a suspected snapped Achilles' tendon and will have to perform the rest of his shows while on crutches.

"I will never stop dancing," Brigstocke said. "Even if I have to confine my raving to arms, head and torso only – if that is what the people want from me then leg or no leg I will give them what they want."

Je m'accuse – I am Marcus sees the comedian elaborate on an assortment of incredible facts throughout his life and shows daily at Assembly Halls: Rainy Hall.
