Jon Holmes and Paul Goldstein: controversial and award-winning writer and broadcaster versus outspoken award-winning wildlife photographer and travel guide...what could possibly go wrong?!

 The Alex is delighted to be hosting the world premiere of Jon Holmes and Paul Goldstein doing what they do best - which is being provocative, being funny, arguing and possibly swearing (a bit) at each other.

Jon,a polymath writer, comedian, broadcaster and presenter was ‘the short one’ from BBC Radio 4’s The Now Show, co-created Dead Ringers and wrote TV’s Horrible Histories. He is also an award-winning travel writer for The Sunday Times and, n the pursuit of a story, has biked the Tiger Corridor of Northern India, ‘enjoyed’ crocodile hunting with the natives of Papua New Guinea, and was hospitalised by a colony of sea urchins off the coast of Puerto Rico. He’s written a number of books.

Paul is a photographer, raconteur, wildlife guide and conservationist and is one of the world’s best known and most skilled wildlife photographers. His list of dislikes is legendary and includes Chinese traditional medicine, management consultants, posed wildlife photos, politicians and Powerpoint. You’ll have definitely seen his stunning photographs in any number of magazines and newspapers. He is the owner of 4 safari camps in Africa, so he will be enlightening us with “stories from the bush”.  

Jon and Paul have travelled to various parts of the globe together, and this world premiere finds them in conversation onstage for the first time talking about comedy, travel journalism, photography, climate change, conservation, Jon’s travel photography (“Poor” – Paul), Paul’s writing (“Hopeless” – Jon) and much, much more. Accompanied by incredible photos, this is a unique event and not to be missed.

 

“I have been waiting for this brilliant event to happen for ages, it had better be as good as they say it is”- Jon’s father-in-law

EVENT

As part of a full UK tour by Trigger Happy TV star Dom Joly in Spring 2020, Dom Joly’s Holiday Snaps: Travel and Comedy In The Danger Zone will be coming to The Alexander Centre on 14th February. Travel and Comedy in The Danger Zone is a rip-roaring travelogue featuring stories from his childhood home in the Lebanon – where he went to school with Osama Bin Laden – to North Korea, Chernobyl and Cambodia.

This tour marks a period of intense activity for Joly, who will be the subject of a three-part prime time BBC TV show in Easter ’20, at the conclusion of the tour.

Dom has remained enormously popular since his pioneering Channel 4 show, Trigger Happy TV, which was sold to 70 countries, while his three travel books have brought him to a wider, literate audience.

Dom’s tour also coincides with the impending paperback publication of his new book,The Hezbollah Hiking Club, in which a boozy, cricket-filled afternoon at Lord’s led Joly and two pals to hike across the Lebanon, from the Israeli border to the Syrian border.

This show is a Dave Gorman-esque assemblage of clips, holiday snaps, funny stories and more – part comedy, part travelogue. There will be a meet'n'greet in addition to a sale of signed books.

Tickets available at the Alexander Centre - 01795 591691 / bookings@thealexandercentre.com or book online:- https://www.tickettext.co.uk/the-alexander-centre-cic/dom-jolys-holiday-snaps-14022020/
