The first rule of book (fight) club is you don’t talk about book (fight) club…unless you use proper punctuation and grammar.

Enter the literati Thunderdome where 8 books enter and only 1 can leave. A book club like none you’ve ever seen. Retired WWF superstar El Jaguar took a big pivot during COVID to start facilitating the best book club for those who think they hate book clubs. Join him as Atwood fights Hemingway. Marquez battles Seuss. Dickens duels Dodd.

Unstoppable laughs from one of the most outrageous comedians hiding out in New Zealand. Was he once a WWF World champion? Rumours abound. Don't miss this totally unique comedian.
