Well Thumbed
  • Edinburgh Fringe

The premise of the show is simple: once upon a time when you took a classic book from the shelf it always opened at the well-thumbed mucky bits. Well Thumbed is outrageous stand-up literature, as one man enthusiastically thumbs through the contents of a respectable library in a show that will have Mary Whitehouse spinning in her chastity belt. Warning: this libertine and ribald celebration contains historically robust language and subject matter. Jane Austens dirty bits will be riffled for your pleasure. Its bawdy, educational, shocking, entertaining, delightful, charming, licentious, risqu, salacious, witty, naughty, wicked and breath-taking.
