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 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 an observation than a question.

Shortlisted for Best Comedy at the 2021 Greater Manchester Fringe Festival; previously performed at WOMAD, Stoke Newington Literary Festival, The Idler Festival and Port Eliot.

Joanna Neary is. . .a character actress par excellence; not only are her characters well observed and immaculately performed, but they are well written, and, most importantly, funny. (The Guardian)

Ben Moor, for my money, is the Ken Campbell/Spalding Gray of my generation, a natural storyteller who blurs the boundaries between comedy, theatre and performance art. (Stewart Lee)
