Swindon Literature Festival: Tony Hawks

Have you ever been wooed by Hollywood? What would you say if movie moguls wanted to make your book into a film? You cannot be serious; or, this is very funny! Comedian, author, lyricist, radio and television panellist, Tony Hawks tells the story of how he went from being a comedian and author to being a filmmaker as well.

Following the best-selling success of Round Ireland with a Fridge, Tony was approached by Hollywood film makers who wanted to buy the rights to his book. Unbeknown to him, this moment was a high point as the journey from then on became one of frustration and duplicity. That is, until he decided to forget Hollywood and adopt the ‘do-it-yourself’ approach. Now, with films of two books under his belt, Tony can recount the hilarious and challenging ups and downs of being a British independent film maker.
