The hilariously camp, highly sympathetic Gemini, known as Alan Carr is not all that meets the eye, in other words not all teeth and glasses. In fact best not to jump to conclusions about who he is, as his outer persona, i.e. that big grin and all that entertaining spiel might cover up a basically shy Gemini. Nah we hear you cry!!! We know, hard to believe, especially since he struts around the stage, his audience falling about at his cutting quips and fast repartee. Our chap was born in Dorset and moved to Manchester when he realised that he was getting absolutely nowhere fast in any facet of his existence. He always wanted to make em laugh; cheering up the general public was doing something positive for humanity after all. He is sharp, to the point and is eye observant, taking in the variants of human nature with natural ease, and still managing to convey its quirks with great aplomb.
He likes to camp it up, but has said “I just think gay people need to get over themselves. Just because you’re gay and on the telly doesn’t mean you’re a role model. I’m just a comedian. That’s all I am…. What am I meant to do? Do I go down the Julian Clary route and talk about fisting and poppers? I don’t talk about being gay and I think what better equality for gays than that?” His rise to fame included appearances at Edinburgh shows and in 2007 he toured the UK, but what is it that makes this fun chappie click with his audience so resolutely? Well of course Gemini as his sun sign for starters, Mr. Quicksilver, the winger messenger, makes sure that mind of his remains alert, bright, and perceptive. Just as a note of interest, as far as education is concerned Alan is certainly no shirker; he has a BA (Hons) in Drama and Theatre Studies from Middlesex University. His moon in Capricorn would make him a grounded sort of chap, able to burn the midnight oil when it comes to research and picking up new and original information.
He has a sense of competition, of being the best, yet he is also someone who hates to see others hurting each other, and cannot quite get his head around humanity’s sicker traits like torture, racism, sexism etc. The split side of his Gemini picture might make it a bit difficult for him to integrate the more materialistic aspects of life with a higher, more comedic vision. He might get lost along the way, and it has to be said his road to success has not always been paved in gold, especially regarding a love life, which could be strewn with conflict. He is inclined to worry about it even though his emotional nature is adventurous, experimental. In fact he is the kind of guy who likes to carry on a long term conversation with the object of his affections, and gets upset when things get emotionally taxing and less than fascinating as a result. He doesn’t like a classic relationship, but he wants closeness, so there are some contradictions for him to deal with, especially as he is inclined to get sudden crushes, due to a fiery Mars placement. It has to be faced, our friend is basically an intellectual, who, as we inferred, can grasp the more complex absurdities of existence to get his audience laughing.
His intelligence is an advantage when it comes to a fun take on reality, less of an advantage when he worries about all the possible things that could go wrong. He will ruminate, more than excessively, until he has brought up some extremely creative and original quip. He is also well grounded enough not to allow himself to be overcome by fraught thoughts. In fact his comedic talents help him to shift focus off his own darker side. A lovely Venus in Gemini showers him with originality, he is one of those guys who can captivate you without you realising it. It is not unusual to see rapt faces staring up at him the during one of his performances as Mars in Leo will literally lift him into the moment, making each performance vibrant with intensity, In other words he just must express himself, if he does not he will get hit with an attack of the blues and could be sulky. There is a sense that this is a guy who likes to keep on the move, he would fidget, and he does not want to remain stuck in one boring place.
As a kid his mum would have yelled “Alan for goodness sake stop wiggling!” But it is his north node in Scorpio that closes the deal. This is a man who will be enigma to his friends, there is something about him that is difficult to suss, perhaps because we do not realise that he is on a sort of mission, and it is to plunge into the depths of human nature, pull it up and then flash it in front of us, realistically, satirically, derisively, mocking us, in any event, making us laugh. Over the next year his career will become even more than well established, he will take on interesting work projects, even more tours, he will be in demand in other words. He cannot fail to be a cross between a camp comedian and a social commentator, he has us giggling, intrigued, curious and over the next couple of years his genial take will put him on the international map. Alan, we love to have fun with you, when you are around!
