Bring on the Dancing Poodles

Synopsis:
Meet disgraced superstar, Godfrey Blackstone, and totally unknown mediocrity, Harold Taylor. Thrown together by fate, these ruined crocks fulminate against the Gods. Learn the truth behind the headlines. Why did Godfreys wife elope with a Costa Rican body builder? Why did Harolds stint as Santa Claus end in fiasco? What was Godfreys role in the shameful scenes of street rioting in Cork City? Can their reality TV show, Celebrity Firing Squad, possibly succeed? Roar with mirth as their endless vigil stretches into the small hours. Shiver with horror as an impromptu sťance leads to a demonic climax of Faustian proportions. Marvel as these two extraordinary men display a stoic endurance worthy of the medieval flagellants.
