In the guise of L. Vaughan Spencer
Neil Mullarkey pays a tongue-in-cheek homage to self-help gurus, lifestyle coaches and motivational speakers. “Don’t Be Needy, Be Succeedy”
a hilarious evening’s entertainment where L. Vaughan Spencer leads his audience on a voyage of self-discovery as they take their first steps to becoming Succeeders©
(check out www.thesucceeder.com).
In L. Vaughan Spencer, Neil Mullarkey has invented a comedy creation to rival the likes of The Pub Landlord and Alan Partridge. The show has played to great acclaim including a run at the Edinburgh Festival (where it won the Fringe Report Award for Best Satire
). L-Vo (as he likes to be known in a J-Lo kinda way) is also much in demand at corporate conferences in the UK and abroad. Audiences love to see the whole cheesy charade sent up by the cavorting Gangsta Motivator
in his pony-tail and rust-coloured suit.
L-Vo's book DON'T BE NEEDY BE SUCCEEDY: THE A TO ZEE OF MOTIVITALITY
has been published in UK, USA, Australia and India as well as on Kindle. He has written and performed in instructional videos for LearnDirect (the government's post-school learning service), Yoodoo (a website for people starting their own business), Customer Service TV and starred in the "bumper-breaks" for Nicorette on DAVE, the UKTV channel, as well as featuring in April Fool viral videos for The Economist and Microsoft.
Performing comedy has become just a sideline these days for Neil. He continues to improvise with the Comedy Store Players (recognized by the Guinness World of Records as the world's longest-running comedy troupe in the world with the same core cast; Neil has been with them since they started in October 1985). However he is very busy now working (for real) with leaders and teams, using improv and other theatre techniques to enhance communication and creative skills. His "Improvyourbiz" master-classes are much in demand across the world. So he has decided to make this the last time he will do the full show.
