Details

In this exclusive Toronto appearance, the popular British comedian Laurence Shorter will deliver a stand-up performance based on the yearlong worldwide quest to find positive thinkers that he chronicles in The Optimist: One Man's Search For The Brighter Side Of Life. What's it like to sit down for a chat with such luminaries as Bill Clinton, Archbishop Desmond Tutu or California's Renowned Surfing Rabbi? Are they as inspiring in person as they are on TV? The Optimist rocketed up bestseller lists all across the United Kingdom last month and is now poised to do so on this side of the pond. Following his set, Shorter will discuss the fine line between hope, despair and comedy with award-winning author and journalist Patricia Pearson. – A This is Not A Reading Series event presented by Pages Books & Magazines, Doubleday Canada, Gladstone Hotel, EYE WEEKLY and Take Five on CIUT.
