The Grade Cricketer Podcast: UK Ashes Tour - Live

The Grade Cricketer Podcast: UK Ashes Tour - Live


Get your rig in to shape and your salad sorted, because the Grade Cricketer lads are coming to Leeds as part of a very special run of LIVE performances to coincide with this summer’s Ashes series. 

As wide-eyed juniors, Dave Edwards, Sam Perry and Ian Higgins all dreamed of playing cricket for Australia one day. That was before they entered the harsh, dog-eat-dog world of Australian club cricket, where their hopes and dreams were swiftly extinguished; their cricketing careers subsequently laid to rest. As a form of catharsis, ‘The Grade Cricketer’ was born: a desperate, delusional ‘everyman’ that thousands of middling amateur athletes from all over the world can relate to, even if they refuse to admit it publicly. 

Fresh from their chart-topping podcast, a series of hit books, a TV show and an Australian tour, the trio are now bringing their wares to the live stages of England. Join them and a very special guest each night as they examine cricket’s greatest rivalry and attempt to hold a mirror to that dark, inescapable, intangible that binds them all: Australian Cricket Culture. 

‘The Grade Cricketer has taken us so far inside a district club dressing room that you feel like a locker. Ligaments could not be closer to the bone than some of his observations.’ _Kerry O’Keeffe  – Commentator and former Australian Test Cricketer_ 

‘The beauty of The Grade Cricketer is he is more than a grade cricketer — he is every cricketer, from the park to the SCG. His insights into the game make people laugh mostly because they reflect every cricketer’s unspoken convictions. We all live vicariously through him, as he does us.’ _Ed Cowan – __Former Australian Test Cricketer_ 

‘The Grade Cricketer is strange and, I suspect, brilliant’ _Wisden_

‘Does anybody listen to this?’ _Brendon Julian__-Former Australian Test Cricketer_
