Simply hilarious and utterly captivating’



 Christopher Bliss, a charming misfit from Shropshire, thinks he is the writer of his generation. He writes two to three ‘novels’ a day including such classics as his 2-man whodunit: A Murder And A Robbery At The Same Time On The Train From London To Shropshire. In reality,

Christopher’s stories have been neither published nor enjoyed by anyone outside his immediate family. Spurred on by a throwaway compliment from his auntie, he’s decided to leave his village for the first time in his life and come to London to showcase his unique brand of storytelling.
