ABOUT ALAN CUMMING

Alan Cumming has been described by Time magazine as one of the most fun people in show business, by The New York Times as a “bawdy, counter-cultural sprite” and by The Guardian as “European, weird, and sexually ambiguous.” He is many things to many people – renaissance man, style icon, social activist and bon viveur.

Alan Cumming trained at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama. After leaving, he quickly found himself celebrated in his homeland for his TV work and his stand-up comedy. He found his biggest break in theater, where he was recognized for roles in Hamlet, Macbeth, The Threepenny Opera, and more. His previous cabaret show, Alan Cumming Sings Sappy Songs, was described by The New York Times as an “emotional firestorm.”

Cumming has won more than 30 awards for his humanitarianism and social activism, received both the Great Scot and Icon of Scotland awards from his homeland and was made an OBE – Officer of the British Empire – for his contributions to the arts and LGBT equality. His 2014 memoir, Not My Father’s Son, was a New York Times No. 1 bestseller.
