The Grand

We tickled your fancy with two of the smartest, funniest and all round most talented writers we know. One of our best known stand-up comedians, MARK WATSON, is also a wonderfully gifted novelist and introduced us to his latest, 'Hotel Alpha'. We first met SIMON RICH armed with his short stories, 'The Last Girlfriend On Earth', but tonight he read from his latest collection, 'Spoiled Brats', and brought the house down. Poetics were served by one of the brightest sparks on the London spoken word circuit, SOPHIA THAKUR, and there was music from the remarkable MOSS PROJECT. The night was hosted by our favourite 'Ward', FELICITY, and there was even a short set from our hero, JOSIE LONG
