To celebrate the last title of 2020, and because Elvis McGonagall does not have an Instagram account – we’re hosting our last book launch on Zoom – Thursday 3rd December 8-9pm! Tickets via eventbrite

Stand-up poet, comedian and walking shortbread tin Elvis McGonagall launches his new book ‘Complete and Utter Cult!’ live on Zoom with very special guests. Tickets are donation based, but we also really encourage you to buy the book!

 This new collection of satirical verse captures Elvis’ ongoing futile exasperation at the dismal trajectory of our post-truth world as it trundles along the primrose path to Beelzebub’s bottomless pit. Fake news and COVID-19. Organic novichok and Piers Morgan. Yes, the good ship lollipop is sailing down the shitter. Climb aboard with Elvis as he bellows into the void of our diseased, burning planet and we all drift towards a giant melting iceberg.

“Complete and Utter Cult!” tackles everything from the pernicious effects of the patriarchy to disappearing rainforests via Brexit milkshakes and a pandemic. Yes, all the feel-good hits are here, fully annotated with the innermost thoughts from the canyons of Elvis’ mind as he banged away on his typewriter at The Graceland Caravan Park. And there’s a love poem.

“Elvis McGonagall is one of my favourite poets. His poems have wit, intelligence and imagination. He performs with honesty and integrity and makes me laugh, think and feel. After, but not until, you’ve bought all my books I thoroughly recommend his”
