Jon Harvey: treasuRETROve

Jon loves films that are so bad they're good. In fact he loves them so much they changed his life. One day he found a dusty old VHS of a dodgy-looking B-movie, and it ended up transforming him into Lord Buckethead, the intergalactic space lord who battled Theresa May in the 2017 General Election. This is the story of how and why it all happened, and the even weirder story of Count Binface that came next, as part of Jon's video odyssey into the world's most unintentionally brilliant pop culture.

Press & Reviews

The i Paper
****
"The most surprising show of the fringe... extraordinary, deliriously enjoyable"

Chortle
****
"Excellent... very funny"

The Scotsman
****
"Compelling... a thorn in the side of the most powerful offices in the land"

Armando Iannucci
"Always surprising. Always funny. Which is different from saying he's surprisingly funny. That would be negative. And I'm being positive. I've never done a poster quote before."

Adam Hills
"Brilliant. Please, please, go see."

Al Murray
"There's a reason you haven't heard of him."

Andy Hamilton
"Deserves quotes."

Edinbraw
****
"This show answers a question you forgot you once asked, and I promise you'll want to hear the answer."
