Doug Fishbone will perform one of his unique comic mobile lectures; taking audiences on a bespoke sightseeing bus tour of Peckham.
In 2013 Fishbone was commissioned by The Culture Ship for the Mayor’s Thames Festival to produce Deluxe River Booze Cruise, a journey through both the dark heart of the city and his own mildly warped imagination. Doug’s lecture’s use the rhythm, cadence and timing of the stand up comic in the creation of a new form of live art.
For this work the artist is taking the local area of Peckham as a starting point to create a unique perspective and insight in to the histories, cultures and communities of an area that is at the forefront of many of the debates regarding urbanism and gentrification.
