Matthew Highton's Shadowed Vagary
Warm, intelligent and beautifully written tall tale
This article is from 2011.
This warm, intelligent and beautifully written tall tale winds its way from an office infatuation to an apocalyptical climax featuring a fembot with an allergy to Nando’s Peri-Peri sauce, Mickey Rourke’s magic peacock and an evil Patrick Moore. Sweet and imaginative, but not in a ‘oh so intelligent I’ll pretend I’m thick’ kind of way. Great value stand-up.
