The Queen's Hall
Tue 19th Aug - Sun 24th Aug
In an unprecedented feat of strength, Clive James carries his latest book on stage and then talks about almost anything else, after which he answers questions about everything except his liaison with Margarita Pracatan. Is Australia the new centre of world civilization? Hear about the secret plans for Heathrow Terminal 6. Famous for writing the way he talks, Clive James can talk the way he writes. When asked if he was actually really a stand-up comedian, Clive was the man who lay back in his sun-lounger beside the swimming pool of the Four Seasons hotel in Los Angeles and said ‘What does it look like?’
A feast of opinion, some of it surprisingly sane.
