A Hero For Our Times
Join me for a comic tale of love, loss, redemption and ramekins.
Slightly surreal, hugely funny, it’s a story about how to cope with the absurdity of today’s world, find love at 43, put on a one-man show in New York and come to terms with all your spare ramekins. 'Heroic storytelling' (Sunday Telegraph) from 'a master raconteur' (Independent on Sunday) that promises a 'laugh in every line' (Scotsman).
This is the sequel to my multiple five-star, sell out one-man show: The Brandreth Papers.
