About this event

★★★★★ Dircksey Magazine ★★★★1/2 Fourth Wall Media ★★★★ Glam Adelaide ★★★★ Tulpa Mag
"a collaboration of world-class comedians talking about everything book-related" Westerly Magazine 2019

After a successful tour around Australian and Edinburgh, the book-themed smash is back! It's a compilation show featuring a rotating bill of comedians and storytellers talking all things bookish.

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 shows 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

Presented by:
