Garth Marenghi, the cult comedy character portrayed by Matthew Holness announces an 18-date live show across the UK.
Starting in November 2022 in support of his first spine-tingling book TerrorTome, an unmissable and entertaining read for all fans of comedy, horror, and Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace.
An official synopsis of the book and show explains: “When horror writer Nick Steen gets sucked into a cursed typewriter by the terrifying Typeface, Dark Lord of the Prolix, the hellish visions inside his head are unleashed for real.
“Forced to fight his escaping imagination – now leaking out of his own brain – Nick must defend the town of Stalkford from his own fictional horrors, including avascular-necrosis-obsessed serial killer Nelson Strain and Nick’s dreaded throppleganger, the Dark Third.”
Hardback copies of TerrorTome will be available for purchase on the day.
Be warned: signings are strictly time-limited and you’ll get no more than one minute with the world’s greatest Frighternerman, Darkscribe, Doomsage (plus Man-Shee) before you’re moved on and/or manhandled.
TICKETS: Tickets go on sale November 4 at 10am at Live Nation.
