Catalyst Club host, David Bramwell, performs his ever-evolving lecture on the nature of mischief, trickery and that pesky wabbit. As Broadway Baby put it:
‘A tour of the fascinating history of tricksters in a perfect blend of comedy, history and lecture. We are introduced to many unforgettable characters: the man who sold the Eiffel Tower for scrap and Abrie Krueger, the South African who won the World’s Biggest Liar award for claiming to be King of the Wensleydale. Bramwell also explores the tales of coyote trickster and the curious rabbit, tracing their archetypal roots from mythology to Brer Rabbit and the eternal struggle between Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner. The talk surprises at every turn and is peppered with unlikely anecdotes and snippets of historical foolings.
Bramwell is an excellent wordsmith and orator, he enthrals the audience and delivers with such verve and flawless style. I urge you to go and see him, read him, listen to him in his many guises – and watch out for the rabbit!” Broadway Baby *****
