Alan Cumming’s career has been as eclectic as his performances. He was an award-winning Hamlet, the voice of a Smurf, appeared in a Jay Z video, launched an award-winning fragrance named Cumming, has played Dionysus, the Devil, God, the Pope, and the Master of Ceremonies in Cabaret, won Tony and Olivier awards for his acting, became an Officer of the British Empire for both his work and his commitment to the progression of LGBT rights in Britain and the United States of America, has sung at Carnegie Hall, the Hollywood Bowl, the London Palladium, and the Sydney Opera House. He is a Doctor, of Arts, twice. He has designed wallpaper. Time Magazine called him “one of the three most fun people in show business.” The New York Times described him as “a bawdy counter-cultural sprite.” In You Gotta Get Bigger Dreams: My Life in Stories and Pictures (Rizzoli Ex Libris), Cumming presents 45 picture essays that recount his real-life adventures (and often, misadventures), illustrated by his own equally entertaining photographs.
