666 Comments

The Constitutional, 51 Town Street, Farsley, Leeds, LS28 5HX

£12 + Booking Fee. Doors 7pm. Show 8pm.

One internet thread. Two actors. 666 Comments

In October 2010 cartoonist Gabby Schulz posted a comic strip on his website. It was about online sexism. What could possibly go wrong?

Over the next three days the comic went viral and the comments went bananas. Some of them were witty, some of them were outrageous, some of them were just plain bizarre. 666 Comments is an attempt to stage that comment thread. Hilarious, provocative and occasionally plain terrifying, 666 Comments brings the virtual world into astonishingly vivid reality.

Suitable for ages 14+

Gyles Brandreth

The Old Woollen, Sunny Bank Mills, 83-85 Town Street, Farsley, Leeds, LS28 5UJ

£22.50 + Booking Fee. Doors 7pm. Show Starts 8pm.

Gyles Brandreth, author, actor, former MP, One Show reporter, Gogglebox star, veteran of Countdown, QI and Have I Got News For You, talks about his new childhood memoir – Odd Boy Out (published by Penguin Michael Joseph) – and to share stories from his unusual (and, at times, eccentric) life in the theatre, TV, politics and journalism.

His last one-man show was a 5-Star total sell out when it opened at the Edinburgh Fringe. At the Old Woollen in October you can expect to find Brandreth entertainingly unleashed on the people he’s known and the places he’s been. Without hesitation or repetition (and just a touch of deviation), Just a Minute star Gyles delivers a dazzling evening of wit, wisdom, nostalgia and riotous name-dropping. Gyles will be signing copies of the book, which will be available to buy at the event.
