A Night In with Raven Smith
Is being tall a social currency? Am I the contents of my fridge? Does yoga matter if you’re not filthy rich? Is a bagel four slices of bread? Are three cigarettes a meal?
From IKEA meatballs to minibreaks, spend an evening with ‘Instagram’s funniest man’ Raven Smith as he reflects on the importance we place in the least important things and our frivolous attempts to accomplish and attain. Live in conversation to celebrate the paperback publication of his Sunday Times bestseller Trivial Pursuits, Raven will also explore his single-parent upbringing, his struggles as a lonely teenager and his personal experience of coming out.
This is a guided tour of Raven’s refreshingly self-aware and deeply hilarious mind, as he dissects our modern-day landscape of virtue signalling and (cultural) class signalling, pinpointing our collective consciousness in a way that is both hysterical and painfully accurate.
Full of Raven’s trademark brilliant humour, great tenderness and lingering pathos, this event with Britain’s sassiest social commentator is for anyone who has ever asked ‘when I get to the pearly gates of heaven, will a viral tweet count for or against my entry?’
The ‘stream and book’ package includes a unique ticket for the stream, and a signed copy of Trivial Pursuits, worth £10.99, deliverable to any UK or international address.
For one night only the event will initially be broadcast on 17th February 2021 at 18:30 UK time. It will be available to view up to a week after the event has ended and can be accessed Worldwide. If you live in a time zone that does not suit the initial broadcast time you can watch it at any point after the initial showing for one week.
