Golden Globe and Emmy-nominated Scottish/American man of many talents Alan Cumming will not be acting his age when he hits the road around Australia in his new stage show.


To say Alan’s had a diverse career would be a criminal understatement – he’s performed in concert halls across the globe, played a ‘James Bond’ baddie, God, the Devil, Hitler, the Pope, a teleporting superhero, all the parts in ‘Macbeth’, a Smurf (twice), the MC in ‘Cabaret’ (three times) and Eli Gold in ‘The Good Wife’, a role which earned him multiple Golden Globe, SAG and Emmy nominations.

"Before I'd left drama school I was allowed to go out to do a play, and I came back and I was allowed to do a film," Alan told GQ in a YouTube video documenting his most iconic characters. "So before I'd even left drama school I'd done a film, a play and a TV show – so my classmates hated me."

Alan has also received more than 40 awards as a result of his humanitarianism and social activism, including an OBE from the Queen. If you want some quick proof of the man’s versatility, you need only glance at his back-to-back films with Stanley Kubrick (‘Eyes Wide Shut’) and the Spice Girls (‘Spice World’). He’s put pen to paper five times with ‘Tommy’s Tale’, ‘Not My Father’s Son: A Memoir’, ‘You Gotta Get Bigger Dreams: My Life In Stories And Pictures’, and two children’s books ‘The Adventures Of Honey & Leon’ and ‘Honey & Leon Take The High Road’.



Keep your eyes peeled for his next memoir ‘Baggage: Tales From A Fully Packed Life’ in October 2021.

‘Alan Cumming Is Not Acting His Age’ sees the actor, author and cabaret star presenting bewitching, mischievous nights of showbiz, tunes and laughs across the country, all wrapped around a celebration of the most communal of pastimes: ageing. The tour comes after Alan's run as 2021 Artistic Director for Adelaide Cabaret Festival.

Tickets are on sale 19 May.
