Complete & Utter Cult! by Elvis McGonagall
Stand-up poet, comedian and walking shortbread tin Elvis McGonagall returns with Complete and Utter Cult!. This new collection of satirical verse captures Elvis’ ongoing futile exasperation at the dismal trajectory of our post-truth world as it trundles along the primrose path to Beelzebub’s bottomless pit. Fake news and COVID-19. Organic novichok and Piers Morgan. Yes, the good ship lollipop is sailing down the shitter. Climb aboard with Elvis as he bellows into the void of our diseased, burning planet and we all drift towards a giant melting iceberg.
“Elvis McGonagall is one of my favourite poets. His poems have wit, intelligence and imagination. He performs with honesty and integrity and makes me laugh, think and feel. After, but not until, you've bought all my books I thoroughly recommend his”
- Henry Normal
“….a sharp and savvy political commentator who pulls no punches with searing wit, astute observation and a thrilling gift for hyperbole. A deceptively intelligent commentary on modern life that is inclusive, accessible and utterly hilarious”
