Andy Stanton is in The Club, chatting about his brand new book The Paninis of Pompeii!
In the story, fart-trader Caecilius, his wife, Vesuvius, and their ten-year-old son, Filius, live in a bizarre world of accidental gladiators, pizza-emitting volcanoes and the legendary Ma-wol-n-f!
You’ll meet the household servant, Slavius; thrill at the misadventures of Barkus Wooferinicum and generally have an uproariously hilarious time of it all.
Full of ludicrous characters and outrageous word play – if you thought Mr Gum was weird, then get a load of the Ancient Pompeiians!
Plus we hear about his brand new stage show at the National Theatre, Mr Gum!
