Juggling happy mutant Mat Ricardo is putting on another one of his glorious east London variety shows! He writes,
Mat Ricardo's London Varieties is back - and we only have two more London shows this year! Next one is June 14th - that's NEXT THURSDAY - and it's a cracker of a line-up. Former world champion of close-up magic, and one of Derren Brown's co-writers - the astonishing RICHARD MCDOUGALL. All the way from Ireland with their spandex unitards, the incredible circus craziness of the LORDS OF STRUT. One of the UK's funniest and most in-demand speciality acts - the hilarious NOEL BRITTEN.
PLUS: A very special interview guest from the glory days of music hall, your host will be performing several new tricks for the first time ever, we'll be showing more rare archive variety footage and all the usual surprises!
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.
