Juggler, impresario, and happy mutant Mat Ricardo sez, "We're halfway through the 2012 season of my monthly London variety show, and it's going better than I could have dreamt. Sell-out audiences (thanks, in part, to BoingBoing's support) of wonderful people who totally get that every show is a one-off unique event. last month I learnt and performed and entirely new plate juggling routine, tap danced with a stage full of showgirls and hosted some of the best variety acts in the world. Ridiculous fun! The next show is May 10th (tickets), and we have another killer line-up, and a bunch of secret surprises to spring, too!"
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
