An Evening with Jon Ronson
�6/4 Box Office 01482 323638
Do 12ft lizards rule the world? Jon Ronson, one of Britain�s wittiest and most insightful satirists, investigates the world of �them� and �us�. Jon Ronson talks about his hazardous quest to locate the secret rulers of the world, and his experiences with David Icke, the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis, and fundamentalists of all persuasions. Cool, clever and very, very funny, Ronson gives a deadpan account of his encounters with political, cultural and religious extremists and of the conspiracy theorists who pursue them.
Jon Ronson is an award winning documentary filmmaker for Channel 4, a columnist for Time Out and The Guardian, and the author of the bestselling Them: Adventures with Extremists . Jon has appeared at festivals and conventions across the country, including Hay on Wye and the Fortean Times Unconvention.
�Ronson has a deft, ironic touch and a brilliant way with scene-setting and direct speech�one of the book�s great merits is that it never takes itself too seriously�a funny and compulsively readable picaresque adventure through a paranoid shadow world, with Ronson playing Sancho Panza to cast of obsessives� Louis Theroux
