  • The Greater Manchester Fringe

Jenny Nibbingley and Burton Mastrick truly need no introduction. Their novels have long been secretly well-regarded by those in the know, but rarely bought or read by the general public. Todays event promises to be an enlightening discussion of such essential books as Why Reigate?, Randoms, Hatred of Broccoli, and Only If I Have To. Tim Timminey will moderate. Book Signing afterwards. Well, thats the plan anyway.But when do things go to plan? BookTalkBookTalkBook combines a parody of awkward live author events; an exploration of artificial intelligence and the creative process; a Beckettian live theatre experience, and an experiment in the limits of patience regarding card tricks. With jokes.Funny and wise, imaginative and original, this is a show you cant put down. Sorry, that was more of an observation than a question.Joanna Neary is a multi-award winning comedian and actor. Her work blends brilliantly observed characters and interpretive dance. She is also performing her current show, Wife on Earth at the GMFF. Ben Moor has been producing bizarre and creative solo comedy pieces since 1993. He is also performing his current show, Who Here's Lost? at the GMFF.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD

Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
