Critically acclaimed, award-winning, best-selling writer, journalist and documentary filmmaker Jon Ronson comes to Cork with his new show Tales from The Last Days of August and The Butterfly Effect. 

In this brand new show, Jon will recount his recent adventures in the porn world - based on his hit podcasts The Butterfly Effect and The Last Days of August. It’ll be a mysterious, funny, sad tale about porn, kindness, violence, bad thoughts, and the wonders of remaining curious. There will be new stories, never before heard audio, some very strange (PG rated) bespoke porn film clips, and maybe some special guests too.

Jon Ronson’s nonfiction books include so You’ve Been Publicly Shamed, The Psychopath Test, Them: Adventures With Extremists, Lost At Sea and The Men Who Stare At Goats. All have been international and/or New York Times best-sellers, translated into more than 30 languages, and his two TED talks have been watched 15 million times.

Jon Ronson’s original screenplays include the critically acclaimed Netflix original Okja, which he co-wrote with Bong-Joon Ho, and Frank, which he co-wrote with Peter Straughan. Okja was selected to compete for the Palm D’Or at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival and Frank won the Best Screenplay Award at the 2014 British Independent Film Awards. The Men Who Stare At Goats was adapted into a film starring George Clooney.

"It makes for a gripping listen, a story that unfolds in a madly unpredictable way."     
The Guardian (on The Butterfly Effect)
