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
