In With The Spiders

I wrote and produced all of the exhibition content for In With the Spiders at ZSL London Zoo (graphic design by Matt Cotterill). We showed Sir David Attenborough around and later he sent us a postcard calling the exhibit ‘ingenious and innovative’. The exhibit includes a spider in a bathtub, Europe's only 'spider walkthrough' (thrilling in different ways for arachnophobes and arachniphiles), and The Incredible Talking Spider - a monologue written by me and voiced by my comedy hero Stewart Lee. Sir David listened to it and said 'He's very good'. I don't know if he was referring to Stewart Lee, my writing, or the tarantula.
