This Funzing Experience:
What would you do if you came home to find a dead body in your living room? How would you react? Imagine then being imprisoned for a crime you didn't commit for over three decades? Join us for this truly jaw dropping story with Jamie Morgan Kane - the man who wrongly spent 34 years in Folsom Prison.

Born on the Isle of Man, Jamie was raised in America by a woman he thought to be his mother. During the Vietnam war, he served as a medic in the thick of the gore and was special ops trained like Jason Bourne.

In California, he married, had a child and worked as a mechanic. But unsuspecting to Jamie, his seemingly normal life was about to be turned upside down... after discovering a corpse in his house, he removed it out of fear he would be blamed. The prosecutor wanted to give him and his wife the death penalty.

In Folsom prison, Jamie’s military training earned him a reputation as a skilled fighter, which upset a leader of the Aryan Brotherhood prison gang. Numerous attempts were made on his life. Eventually, he settled down to helping people in the prison until his final release in 2018.

Venue: Belgrave Music Hall, Leeds
