F Scott Fitzgerald's sparkling, waggish tales of 1939 Hollywood delightfully rendered by LA-born actor Paul Birchard. Pat Hobby, script hack who was hot when the movies were dumb, lurches from job to job, managing by luck and low cunning to more or less avoid the abyss of unemployment and despair. Birchard himself left Hollywood in a bizarre flash of sanity to study acting in Glasgow! Lurching himself from job to job, he discovered The Pat Hobby Stories. Amazed by their timeless, savage humour, he performs them with a zest and relish that effortlessly evokes unbridled laughter.
