A Bookish Comedy Show

After a sell-out run in 2018 and 2019 the book-themed comedy hit is back! A compilation show featuring a rotating bill of comedians and storytellers talking about everything book related – 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)
