Andy Kershaw - The Adventures of Andy Kershaw
Date: Thursday 6th April, 2017
Venue: Widcombe Social Club
Doors: 7.30pm for 8.00pm show
Price: £14 / £12 concs (see below *)
An evening with the legendary broadcaster and foreign correspondent.
Andy's one-man show has become a hugely successful highlight of many literary festivals - including a sold-out appearance at Hay on Wye - and a popular draw at theatres and arts centres around the UK.
Fascinating and often hilarious, the two hour audio-visual presentation treats the audience to recollections from a life spent on the front lines of rock & roll, and on the front lines of some of the world's most extreme and dangerous countries.
"The finest British broadcaster bar none. A real broadcast journalist, a real achiever, a real someone, an amazing man" - Stephen Fry
"A national treasure and born again hero" - Daily Telegraph
"Andy Kershaw is such an enthusiast. He made me travel a little further than I normally do. He has an ability to do things first and ask questions afterwards. Not a recipe for a safe, secure life, maybe, but it makes things a lot more interesting for the rest of us" - Michael Palin
"It's his ability to convey a sense of moment-by-moment aliveness that makes Andy Kershaw the greatest living English-language broadcaster" - Toby Litt
"Kershaw has had one hell of a life...strange and comic" - The Independent on Sunday
"His radio appearances have become rare. He's an intermittent eruption, making everything before and after sound as if it were made by zombies" - New Statesman
