Venue: Online Streamed Production
THIS IS AN ONLINE LIVE STREAMED PRODUCTION FOR YOU TO WATCH AT HOME The ‘stream and book’ package includes a unique ticket for the stream, and a signed copy of Trivial Pursuits, worth £10.99, deliverable to any UK address. Is being tall a social currency? Am I the contents of my fridge? Does yoga matter if you’re not filthy rich? Is a bagel four slices of bread? Are three cigarettes a meal? From IKEA meatballs to minibreaks, spend an evening with ‘Instagram’s funniest man’ Raven Smith as he reflects on the importance we place in the least important things and our frivolous attempts to accomplish and attain. Live in conversation to celebrate the paperback publication of his Sunday Times bestseller Trivial Pursuits, Raven will also explore his single-parent upbringing, his struggles as a lonely teenager and his personal experience of coming out. This is a guided tour of Raven’s refreshingly self-aware and deeply hilarious mind, as he dissects our modern-day landscape of virtue signalling and (cultural) class signalling, pinpointing our collective consciousness in a way that is both hysterical and painfully accurate. Full of Raven’s trademark brilliant humour, great tenderness and lingering pathos, this event with Britain's sassiest social commentator is for anyone who has ever asked ‘when I get to the pearly gates of heaven, will a viral tweet count for or against my entry?’ PLEASE NOTE: BY PURCHASING A TICKET TO THIS EVENT YOU ARE AGREEING FOR DARLINGTON HIPPODROME TO SHARE YOUR BOOKING DETAILS WITH FANE ONLINE WHO WILL BE IN CONTACT WITH FURTHER DETAILS ON THE LIVE STREAM AND BOOK PURCHASES.
