Tap-dancing, stand-up (not for long, I'm 67), and shot-drinking. And false teeth. Gerry Carroll-When I was Alive is a silly and profound look at where I've been. It's a great lunchtime show, you can have a nap afterwards. Actually I'm 68, but last year doesn't count, right?...

It brings with it some reflections on the labels we give to one another and some revelations ab...
