I had bought a ticket for this a while ago because I like Robin Ince's bits he's been doing on Infinite Monkey Cage and his introduction to Brian Cox' Douglas Adams memorial lecture was brilliant, too.
In this show he basically talks about and reads from random books he's found (mostly at charity shops), mostly bad romance novels (Mills & Boon and the like), Giant Crabs, fundie Christian lit and random lifestyle advice books (The Secrets of Picking Up Sexy Girls, rabbit keeping, amateur taxidermy etc.). He also goes off on tangents a lot (or all the time) so everything is a bit random but it's brilliantly performed and very funny.

Support was from Philip Jeays who sings lovely, fun and evil songs about various things with a rather Brecht/Weill feel. Very expressive, a lot of fun.
