When Rosie Meets Martin .
We’re thrilled to be able to announce that the UK’s most controversial cartoonist is now coming to Herne Bay to meet Britain’s most unexpected MP.
Rosie Duffield will be hosting/compéring Rowson on Rowson at the King’s Hall, Herne Bay on Sat Aug 5th @ 3pm.
Until recently, a comedy writer and satirist herself, Rosie overturned a 10,000 majority to become the first non-Conservative Member of Parliament for Canterbury and Whitstable since 1885.
Three weeks ago, Martin Rowson achieved an unique soubriquet for a political cartoonist when he was attacked in a two page editorial in the Daily Mail as “sick and disgusting and deranged and offensive”.
But according to stand-up comedians like Mark Thomas and Phil Jupitus, Martin Rowson is: is “an inky Ninja” and “the best cartoonist working in Britain today”.
While Tory Grandee (and frequent victim) Lord Baker hails Rowson as: “a brilliant cartoonist who is just as funny in person as he is on paper”.
Martin Rowson and Rosie Duffield will be appearing together @ 3pm on Saturday Aug 5th at The King’s Hall, Beacon Hill, Herne Bay, CT6 6BA.
Admission is free. But tickets can be reserved here:
