A darkly witty take on the American pop art icon Andy Warhol and the woman who shot him, Valerie Solanas.

Warhol: Bullet Karma is a show stuffed full of great characterisations from Warhol's artistic heyday. Take a trip back in time to The Factory, Warhol and other important figures for a lesson in pop culture history! Roost's performance really brings these characters to life.

See what Lou Reed, Capote, Edie Sedgwick have to say about 'Drella', and what HE says about them!

"Taking on Andy Warhol takes guts. Roost not only takes him on but masters him" **** BroadwayBaby

"Stuffed full of great characterisations from Warhol's artistic heyday...a lesson in pop culture history" - Upsaide News, Adelaide Fringe

This is a very convincing portrayal that goes so much deeper than an impersonation of the Warhol that we have seen in documentaries. Roost channels something so much deeper" - HIFI Way, Adelaide Fringe

Garry is probably best known as Micky Doolan (the little Irish jockey) in the 'At The Races' sketch (The Day Today) with Steve Coogan (voted 35th best comedy sketch of all time. And in Black Books as 'Creepy Guy', playing with his balls at the water cooler!
