Cometh the Mandrill

So I’ve been making my way through the excellent Alan Moore class offered by BBC Maestro, which is kind of like MasterClass except each class is purchased separately. It’s pretty much as great as I thought it would be…Alan Moore breaking down how he works his art for several hours. What’s not to like?

However, in a section where he discussed performance, he gave a reading of the “Mandrillifesto.” He asked viewers to imagine he was a mandrill fascist dictator. And when I googled it just now, I didn’t have to imagine. It was performed live, in full mandrillized glory, back in 2016. Not sure how I missed, but there’s just too much stuff happening and you can’t catch it all.

The video explains pretty much what you need to know. And it’s…kind of amazing.
