Jim Tavare: From Deadpan to Bedpan

In 2017 comedian, BAFTA award-winner, Harry Potter actor and double bassist Jim TavareĢ was involved in a near fatal head-on automobile collision in Los Angeles where he has lived since 2009. He lived to tell the tale....

In 2018 Jim returned to the Edinburgh Fringe for the first time in 20 years with this, his first narrative show. Directed by Henry Normal, the show went on to win much acclaim, and the Spirit of the Fringe Award.

The story of how a quick trip to the shops changed his life forever.

After suffering catastrophic injuries (over 30 broken bones including 14 broken ribs and punctured lungs that later collapsed, multiple fractures, blunt force trauma to his head and chest, a broken neck and a hand that detached from the wrist) that left him in intensive care on life support, he spent a year in recovery facing an uncertain future. But instead of letting trauma define him, he emerged with a heart-warming and seriously funny tale of survival against the odds, strange forebodings, unbelievably massive American medical bills, and a dog called Mr Kippy.
