1. White woman stands up in pub in Cambridge circus and starts shouting at me asking why do I have to be so aggressive and disgusting?
2. Black woman jumps on stage and tries rip out my dog collar in Worlds End pub Finsbury after I sing 'censor this'. The compere and bar staff jump onto the stage while I pin her to the stage by throat
3. White woman in the Windmill pub comes and stares into my face for 10 minutes as I pack up my gear after a performance and then tries to tell me how offended she is.
"I have never been touched so many times, deep inside, until I listened to the words of the High Priest, or maybe I have..."
"Some mathematical equations can be a real cunt, but once touched deep inside by the High Priest all comes clear."
From the depths of the muggy humid Deep South… in Kent
where racism and homophobia run through the streets like wild animals, the High Priest travels the country delivering sermons using comedy and music (blues, rock and rap influenced) to touch you deep inside inch by inch, spread the love and preach the gospel to his brothers and sisters.
Are you ready to feel the love?
Are you ready to be touched deep inside?
Are you ready to see God?
The High Priest is a comedian and musician, but furthermore an entertainer different from any other you have seen before…
“Providing much needed counter balance in this age of unrivalled officially sanctioned deceit, The High Priest relentlessly drops sweet truth bomb beats into the camps of the mainstream deceivers!”
Craig Allan Campbell – Comedian
The High Priest is no stranger to the entertainment industry, having spent half his youth on hollywood film sets with a father who has won two oscars and a bafta award. But this wasn’t his calling…
Auspiciously THP began his musical career with one of the last true rock and roll, maverick managers, Stevo Pearce (Bizzare Records), producing the album ‘Picture That’ to critical acclaim, released on legendary label Some Bizzare.
“Eminem meets Dylan on literate rapping debut from young British beatnik. The High Priest is a smart young man who’s latched on to the idea that Dylan’s Subterranean Homesick Blues was the first rap record.”
Propelled and amplified by his scorn for the noxious media landscape, governments, illegal wars, pornography, abortion, racism, religion, hypocrisy and more (there’s quite an extensive list!), he felt the need to convert, joining the priesthood of comedy and becoming the self appointed ‘High Priest’ combining mirth and music to touch you deep inside!
“This man knows no fear” Steve Lamacq BBC Radio
Nobody is safe. Controversy is no stranger to The High Priest and he wears it well, in fact he would be probably be lost without it. Like a one man Rage Against the Machine with jokes he savagely sinks his teeth into subjects where other acts rarely tread, and where some wouldn’t even know how.
“(The High Priest is)… Like an x-rated musical version of,
‘Have I Got News For You’.”
Jim Ody – Room Thirteen
“I saw five famous comedians this week in Edinburgh and your show, which was free blew them all away…”
Audience member at Edinburgh Festival 2012
“…The High Priest – if this guy starts up a Sunday Church I for one would be there worshiping complete with hangover… 5 stars”
