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.

I love Letters Live, the marvellous British celebration of the written word featuring major performers and personalities reading letters. Some of them are from famous people others are just everyday folk writing to friends, family, foes, corporations or in this case newspapers.

In 2014, a series of letters were sent to the Guardian newspaper in response to one of the more pressing geopolitical issues of the day. One Nicholas Lizard had asserted that dogs were “inherently fascist”. A good old fashioned “letters to the editor” exchange took place.

And this little gem from Olivia Coleman – who when she performed it at Union Hall apologized that the only American accent she could do was Southern, though she was sure that wasn’t the same as one from Montana.

On March 24th of 1958, 22-year-old Elvis Presley was inducted into the U.S. Army and some of his adoring fans were so concerned they wrote directly to President Eisenhower. This letter is just one of thousands the poor, no doubt slightly bewildered, Ike received.
