I hope I can make it to Eoin Colfer’s NYC gig during his Artemis Rocks tour as the one I attended in 2008 was absolutely hilarious. He set the bar back then, but I have no doubt he will surpass it with this one. The man is clearly a frustrated stand-up comic. According to this PW article:
At each stop, Colfer will take the stage for a talk show-style appearance, during which he’ll perform a monologue and interview none other than Artemis Fowl himself (in the form of a young actor). The shows will also feature original songs and music videos about Artemis (starring the same young actor) and his latest adventure, recorded by San Francisco singer/musician Josh Fix. Audience participation and a book signing will be part of the appearances as well.
And speaking of music videos, here’s one of them. Not bad. Not bad at all.
