George Dimarelos A Bookish Comedy Show

A Bookish Comedy Show

George Dimarelos A Bookish Comedy Show

“The pen is mightier than the sword if the sword is very short, and the pen is very sharp.” Terry Pratchett

After a hit run in 2019 the book-themed comedy experience returns for its second year! A compilation show featuring a rotating bill of comedians and storytellers talking about all things bookish - it could be anything from a kids book that scarred them for life to a time they partied with Salman Rushdie - whatever it is, if you like reading there'll be something for 
you.

So if you’ve ever:

- paused after reading something to take a moment and collect yourself
- read naked
- thought “the book was way better” but didn’t want to be the kind of person who says “the book was way better”

This show is for you my friend.

Other show titles not chosen:
A novel comedy show
Girls gone Wilde (also featuring boys)
Harry Potter and the book themed comedy show no one attended
