Description

The Alternative Book Club presents an unconventional comedy show about books where there is absolutely no required reading. Prepare to be entertained – and informed – by a phenomenal line up of award-winning comics and brilliant friends who will be dissecting anything lit: from John Milton's Paradise Lost to Kim Kardashian's Selfie, and everything in between. All hosted by your host, Shirley Halse. 'A wonderfully entertaining concept' (Alex Farrow, director of Jericho Comedy). 'This is my favourite gig, I love the mix of performers and topics' (Nick Page).
