Arabella Weir - "The Real me is Thin"
Sunday 20 March 2011
Arabella Weir, star of BBC2's The Fast Show, brings the hapless and hilarious tale of a life lived under the constant and ruthless reign of a chocolate biscuit in "The Real me is Thin."
Lumped into 'the too fat for potatoes group' by her mother, carefree eating isn't something Arabella Weir had much experience of growing up.
A night fuelled with comedy and humourous readings from her new book "The Real me is Thin," she vividly recreates a childhood and adolescence marred by the social embarrassment of being marked as different simply due to your weight.
Arabella is the author of the best-selling Does My Bum Look Big In This and contributes regularly to the Radio 4 comedy series Smelling of Roses.
