Wednesday 12 November, 7pm


David Mitchell will discuss his new book Thinking About It Only Makes It Worse.

 Why is my jumper depreciating? Why is every film a sequel or a remake? Is there anything to be done about the internet? Thinking About It Only Makes It Worse - drawn from Observer columns and including new material - explores these troubling questions and other absurdities of modern life.

David Mitchell is a BAFTA winning comedian, actor and writer and the polysyllabic member of Mitchell and Webb. He writes for the Observer, chairs The Unbelievable Truth, co-hosts 10 O'Clock Live, is a team captain on Would I Lie To You? and has been in two films, neither of which made a profit.
Tickets £20 each, or £30 with a copy of the book.
