Andy on Tour
Sorry if I've been slow responding to enquiries about The Star Witness, but I've been touring the UK with my one-man show, Change Management - remaining shows Sunday 15th November in Harpenden, Wednesday 18th Exeter, Thursday 19th Portsmouth, Wednesday 25th Margate, Thursday 26th Reading, and Saturday 28th Blackheath.
The show is a comic look at social change over the last 60 years, and during the performances I've got involved in some extraordinary conversations with the audience about the good old days when teachers were allowed to hit kids. In answer to the question, "What's the worst thing that anyone has been hit with by a teacher?", so far I've had: a cricket bat, running spikes (the spiky side), a desk, an electric fire (which mercifully missed) and a shovel. Any more bids?
For worst things to be hit with by a teacher.... How about Ghonnereah?
(Is that the distant blah of a QI klaxon?)
