Jenny Nibbingley and Burton Mastrick truly need no introduction. Their novels have long been secretly well-regarded by those in the know, but rarely bought or read by the general public. Today’s event promises to be an enlightening discussion of such essential books as Why Reigate?, Randoms, Hatred of Broccoli, and Only If I Have To. Tim Timminey will moderate. Book Signing afterwards.

Well, that’s the plan anyway. But when do things go to plan?

BookTalkBookTalkBook combines a parody of awkward live author events; an exploration of artificial intelligence and the creative process; a Beckettian live theatre experience, and an experiment in the limits of patience regarding card tricks. With jokes.

Funny and wise, imaginative and original, this is a show you can’t put down.

Sorry, that was more of a statement than a question.

Jo Neary is a multi-award winning comedian and actor. Her work blends brilliantly observed characters and interpretive dance. She is performing her current show about relationships, Wife on Earth, around the UK during 2020.

Ben Moor has been producing bizarre and creative solo comedy pieces since 1993. His most recent show, Pronoun Trouble, mixes a lecture about Looney Tunes cartoons with a meditation on words and friendship.

Restoration Levy – £1.50 of the advertised on-sale ticket price goes to Machynlleth Comedy Festival for the continued development and improvement of the event.
