Moby Dick: a book, a play, an episode of Star Trek, 12 movies, and a fish. Now, itís been adapted into a stand-up comedy show by niche idiot Jonny Gillam. He wondered: If we can adapt books into plays. Can we adapt them into stand-up? I donít know. Still, if anyoneís going to fail at this, Iíd like it to be me. The result is a show that is entirely Moby Dick and entirely stand-up. Expect hubristic rants, musings on the minutiae of technical objects and Dick jokes.

FAQ:
Isnít this a stupid idea?
Yes.

Classic literature isnít for me?
The show is more accessible than the literary tour de force-cum-doorstop. Otherwise it wouldnít be stand-up.

Will I like the show even if I havenít read Moby-Dick?
Not having read Moby Dick wonít impede your enjoyment of the show any more than it would impede your enjoyment of reading Moby-Dick. It is stand-up though, so it helps if you like stand-up.

Are These Questions?
Eh?
