What's the talk about?

Since early man with his rattles and whistles first read the entrails of a rabid mule, people have thought it possible to see into the future.  You can predict certain things based on trends, but an all seeing third eye with aspirations of being the new Nostradamus is not a reality.  However, it is almost impossible to walk through a busy town centre without seeing adverts for tarot readers and psychics who can tell you what’s in your future- using my own prediction ability I see a loss of about £10 in the future of anyone deciding to engage with a bit of pub tarot.

Learn about the ages old palmistry, how the runes can affect your life, take part in an interactive gameshow to discover if Nostradamus got anything right at all and compare alleged supernatural prophecy with some prediction based magic trickery.

So join us as we attempt to unravel the mysteries of predicting the future, from phrenology to crystal gazing- feeling your bumps and playing with balls if you will-  this show will use humour and audience participation to investigate prophecy.  Is there anything to it or is it all just bunk? (hint: it’s probably the latter.  Not that I’m psychic or anything).

Sometimes he likes to sit on the beach and watch crabs fight each other.
