8:00pm, Monday 27 May 2019 Assembly Rooms
Critically acclaimed, award-winning, best-selling writer, journalist and documentary filmmaker Jon Ronson returns to the UK in May with his new show Tales from The Last Days of August and The Butterfly Effect. The tour commences at the Corn Exchange, Cambridge on the 6th May, and culminates at the Edinburgh Assembly Rooms on the 27th May.
"It makes for a gripping listen, a story that unfolds in a madly unpredictable way." The Guardian (on The Butterfly Effect)
In this brand new show, Jon will recount his recent adventures in the porn world - based on his hit podcasts The Butterfly Effect and The Last Days of August. It’ll be a mysterious, funny, sad tale about porn, kindness, violence, bad thoughts, and the wonders of remaining curious. There will be new stories, never before heard audio, some very strange (PG rated) bespoke porn film clips, and maybe some special guests too.
"The Butterfly Effect has the same level of detail and widescreen storytelling that you would expect from a television documentary." Financial Times
Jon Ronson’s nonfiction books include so You’ve Been Publicly Shamed, The Psychopath Test, Them: Adventures With Extremists, Lost At Sea and The Men Who Stare At Goats. All have been international and/or New York Times best-sellers, translated into more than 30 languages, and his two TED talks have been watched 15 million times.
"An eye-opening and often heartwarming exercise in breaking taboos."
