Join award-winning comedian Benet Brandreth for a comic tale of love, loss, redemption and ramekins. Slightly surreal, hugely funny, it's a story about how to cope with the absurdity of today's world, find love at 43, put on a one-man show in New York and come to terms with all your spare ramekins. 'Heroic storytelling' (Sunday Telegraph), from 'a master raconteur' (Independent on Sunday) that promises 'a laugh in every line' (Scotsman). Brandreth returns with the sequel to his multiple five-star, sell-out one-man-show The Brandreth Papers.
