S3E77 – The Penryn Tragedy

The Penryn Tragedy

James returns from a minibreak in Cornwall with a swashbuckling tale of piracy, mistaken identity and being very annoying. Don’t worry – all those things apply to the protagonist of the Penryn Tragedy, not James. Prepare yourself for a deadly case of banter-gone-wrong in this Cornish bloodbath.

So gather your booty, moisten your Pogs, and join the Loremen on a quest to discover which popular British celebrity is responsible for 70% of accidents at sea. This episode was recorded in front of a live (stream) audience, as part of the Twinge Festival.

We’re doing a live show in front of an actual audience* on Sunday 12th Sept, 4.30-6pm at the Bill Murray Pub in London. Tickets are £5 in advance, or you can Pay What You Want after the show.
