‘The Road to McCarthy’ – Pete McCarthy
Hebden Bridge Picture House,
New Road, Hebden Bridge
£9 (£7)
‘ . . . one of the funniest writers around’ (Yorkshire Evening Post). TV/radio presenter and accomplished live performer Pete McCarthy’s hilarious and wise McCarthy’s Bar has been in the top ten for over a year! His new book, The Road to McCarthy, takes him from Ireland to Alaska by circuitous route in pursuit of far-flung Irish connections. A funny, engaging and warm-hearted evening. ‘I would go anywhere with this man’ (Sunday Telegraph). Book-signing follows the show. www.petemccarthy.co.uk.
