Comedian, screenwriter & bestselling author Ben Elton, returns with a blistering satire of the world as it crumbles around us. No one is safe as he sends up everything from fake news culture to extreme gender politics, from political sloganism to the power of the hashtag, and everything in between.
Ben Elton's multi-award winning career as both performer and writer
encompasses some of the most memorable and incisive comedy of the
past thirty-five years. In addition to his hugely influential work
as a stand-up comic, he was co-writer of TV hits The Young
Ones and Blackadder and sole creator of The Thin Blue
Line and Upstart Crow. He has written fifteen major
bestsellers, including Stark, Popcorn,
Inconceivable, Dead Famous, High
Society, Two Brothers and Time and Time
Again, three West End plays and three musicals, including
global phenomenon We Will Rock You. He has written and
directed two feature films, Maybe Baby and Three
Summers and wrote the screenplay for All is True,
directed by Kenneth Branagh.
He is married and has three children.
