Lunedi Lunacy

Since it’s inception in 2013 Letters Live has presented an array of performers, such as could only be found in London, reading letters from an all-encompassing range of writers from the famous to the infamous to the unknown. The letters being read can stretch from the mundane to the earth-shattering as the purpose of the events is to simply celebrate, in all its forms, “… the enduring power of literary correspondence.”

Comedian, broadcaster and writer Alan Carr reads an uncredited correspondence from a gentleman who’s insurance claim has been questioned!

On a more historical note, actress Olivia Colman and actor/musician/broadcaster Adrian Edmondson pair up to deliver “diplomatic notes” exchanged between Mehmed IV and the Zaporozhian Cossacks. Just as a warning the Cossacks were less – much less – than polite in their reply. NSFW.

The word for November 15th is:
Letter /ˈledər/: [1. noun 2. verb]
1.1 A character representing one or more of the sounds used in speech; any of the symbols of an alphabet.
1.2 A written, typed, or printed communication, especially one sent in an envelope by mail or messenger.
2. To inscribe letters or writing on
Middle English: from Old French lettre, from Latin litera, littera ‘letter of the alphabet’, litterae (plural) ‘epistle, literature, culture’.

  1. I truly enjoy Letters Live. Had never seen either of these. Olivia Colman and Adrian Edmondson… hilarious.

    Do you suppose that’s REALLY how the guy got his bits stuck in that toilet stall?
