‘The finest British broadcaster bar none.’ – Stephen Fry

Andy Kershaw brings his popular and hilarious one man show to Bantry after sell-out performances at Literary Festivals all over Britain including Hay and Way with Words.

Based on his autobiography No Off Switch, The Adventures of Andy Kershaw is a  one  and  a  half hour  audio-visual presentation about his life, career, adventures and experiences so far, in radio and television, live music, travels to extreme countries and foreign correspondence. Michael Palin said that ‘Andy Kershaw made me travel a little further than I usually do’. Andy once went on holiday to North Korea with Christopher Hitchens and Francis Wheen; has visited 97 of the world’s 194 countries; was a reporter during the first Gulf War and turned down £50,000 to appear on I’m  a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here.
