A Bookish Comedy Show

“a collaboration of world class comedians talking about everything book related” – Westerly Magazine

The book themed comedy show returns to Edinburgh for another year! 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 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
