Allusionist autumn 2018 tour

Hello!

It’s been an unusual few months for me. I’ll tell you all about it sometime, BUT there’s no time right now, because the Allusionist live tour is under way in the US and Canada!

Q: What is the Allusionist live show?
A: It’s a fun 60-75 minutes of language-related entertainment, with absolutely excellent musical accompaniment from Martin Austwick. (Plus, as you can see from these pictures, it’s a visually thrilling experience. I’m hiding my light under a bushel, making audio.)

Q: OK, but what’s it about?
A: Many things, including sedentary champions, political rebellion through foodstuffs, and some rotten portmantNOs.

Q: Can I stay at home and hear it on the podcast?
A: Most of it is new material, tailored just for the live experience, which I might never release on the podcast. This may be your only chance!

Q: Is it suitable for children?
A: There are a few swears in it, but overall, I think yes? My niecephews, aged 10, 11 and 12, saw it and enjoyed it (they are not particular fans of my work and the family tends to be critical, so they’re not biased in my favour). However, check with the venue in question whether they allow under-21s.

Q: Will it help me escape hell for a while?
A: Yes, yes it will.

Q: When and where can I see the show?
