From Union Hall’s website:
In the late 1980s Jon Ronson was the keyboard player in the Frank Sidebottom Band. Frank wore a big fake head. Nobody outside his inner circle knew his true identity. This became the subject of feverish speculation during his zenith years. Together, they rode relatively high. Then it all went wrong.
25 years later and Jon has co-written a film – Frank – inspired by those times and starring Michael Fassbender. Now, Jon will perform FRANK STORY, the true story that inspired the film.
Jon is a nonfiction author, journalist and documentary maker. His books – The Psychopath Test, The Men Who Stare At Goats, Lost at Sea, and Them – are all international bestsellers. The Men Who Stare At Goats was adapted into a film starring George Clooney. Jon is a regular contributor to the PRI show This American Life and has twice appeared on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.
