Review

‘A brilliant book. Twisted, disturbing and very, very funny’ - Dan Rhodes

‘Deliciously obscene and darkly comic ... like Quentin Tarantino on acid. Extraordinary’ -The Times

‘A deeply perverse set of ideas from an obviously troubled personality. I loved it’ -Todd McEwen

Simon Crump is one of the UK's most intriguing, brilliant and foul mouthed new writers.
If you haven't yet caught up with My Elvis Blackout, Monkey's Birthday and Twilight Time, catch Simon's extraordinary diatribe live at the Lamp. Truly filthy and truly funny, Simon Crump lives in Sheffield and is an internationally exhibited artist as well as a writer and journalist.

He used to lecture at the Hull School of Art until they sacked him. He is banned from the Beatrix Potter archive. He is not for the easily offended.

Blood. Swearing. Elvis. It doesn’t get any better than this.

Wednesday 23rd June - 7.30pm
George Hotel, Land of Green Ginger

The Inside-Out Show
Free

Following the enormous success of The Upside Down Show, an evening of literary pranks, surprises, games and some shouting. Philip Wincolmlee Barnes, Tony Petch, Andy Fletcher, John Robinson and others guarantee to entertain and challenge in equal measure. Great fun, and great beer.

Wednesday 23rd June – Thursday 1st July
