Bill Bryson - Observations on Life and the Human Body

3 Sep 2019 to 11 Sep 2019

Best known for his wickedly sassy travel books, Bill Bryson undertook the gigantean task of providing a layman’s take on science in the best-selling A Short History of Nearly Everything. For the past three years Bill Bryson has been taking a good long look at the human body. The result - his latest soon-to- be-released tome The Body; A Guide for Occupants.

Bill Bryson returns to Australia and New Zealand in September for a series of stage events in Perth, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Auckland, titled Bill Bryson Observations on Life and the Human Body, Live on Stage, presented by Lateral Events. Tickets go on sale on Friday 1 March at 12 noon.

With his matchless homing instinct for the funniest and quirkiest, his unerring eye for the idiotic, the endearing, the ridiculous and the scandalous, Bryson will exercise his razor-sharp wit in sharing his globe-trotting travel experiences, his forays into science and his latest endeavour - the human body, live on stage.

Joining Bryson on stage in the role of host will be French-born Australian television presenter, radio host, actress, singer, writer and comedian Julia Zemiro. Zemiro is best known as the host of the musical quiz RocKwiz, co-host of the ABC’s Star Gazing Live with Prof Brian Cox and for her own show for ABC TV, Julia Zemiro’s Home Delivery.

Bryson said, “We spend our whole lives in one body and yet most of us have practically no idea how it works and what goes on inside it. The idea is simply to try to understand the extraordinary contraption that is us. What I learned is that we are infinitely more complex and wondrous, and often more mysterious, than I had ever suspected. There really is no story more amazing than the story of us.”
