Adam Sharp: The Wheel is Spinning but the Hamster is dead

Join wordsmith Adam Sharp for an entertaining show blending stand-up and excerpts from his book as he journeys around the world in idioms, proverbs and general nonsense. Learn unusual insults from France (You are a potato with the face of a guinea pig), how to hurry someone up in the US (You’re going as slow as molasses in January) and what they call a shark in Vietnam (fat fish).

Adam has rounded up the very best ridiculous and hilarious translations from around the globe – so let’s get this show on the road! Or…LEt’s saddle the chickens! (German) On with the butter! (Icelandic) Forward with the Goat! (Dutch)

‘Brilliant, hilarious fun – you will LOVE this book’ – Kit de Waal

‘Extremely entertaining and very useful for new insults’ – Russell Kane
