Warhol: Bullet Karma by Garry Roost

Warhol: Bullet Karma by Garry Roost

By Garry Roost
Warhol: Bullet Karma is a podcast version of the play stuffed full of great characterisations from Warhol’s artistic heyday.
The factory explodes into life with ideas, concepts, wild parties, and the shooting by Valerie Solanas that shook the pop art world. Roost really brings these characters to life "his Solanas is bitter and spiteful, his Francis Bacon, hilariously pompous ", he unfolds the story, the lives and tragic losses of those who lived and died in the factory. A darkly witty take on the American icon of pop art.

Warhol: Bullet Karma by Garry Roost Ep 1
Audio podcast version of the critically acclaimed solo play about Andy Warhol artist, director, producer. Warhol: Bullet Karma is a show stuffed full of great characterisations from Warhol’s artistic heyday,  Warhol is obsessively self conscious, so much so that he finds it impossible to have meaningful physical sexual intimacy. His father left him a contribution toward his education to go to college. This Warhol excelled at and was recognised by his tutor to be "the most gifted and talented student I've ever seen.." We see Andy moving to New York and gets his dream job as a commercial artist. The factory explodes into life with ideas, concepts, wild parties, and the shooting by Valerie Solanas that shook the pop art world. Roost really brings these characters to life "his Solanas bitter and spiteful, his Francis Bacon, hilariously pompous ", he unfolds the story, the lives and tragic losses of those who lived and died in the factory. A darkly witty take on the American icon of pop art. Take a trip back in time to The Factory, Warhol and other important figures, a lesson in pop culture history!
