Description

With his original, informative, often comical stories, Twidle brings a sense of play to subjects often dealt with in predictable or self righteous ways. He covers routine, politics, public transport - and acne. Hugely entertaining, with a keen sense for the ridiculous, Firepool offers a fresh take on the beautiful, ugly, maddening country we live in.  While hugely entertaining, it will also make you look at the everyday with new eyes.
