The Space – Jon Ronson and Jocelyn Stevenson review

The Space – second anniversary with Jon Ronson and Jocelyn Stevenson

Jon Ronson, the humourist journalist and author of Them: Adventures with Extremists was the big draw for this event. Shambling onto stage with Briggy Smale, he discussed how, as a neurotic Jewish journalist, he puts himself in danger on a monthly basis, maintaining humour and charm whlist interviewing Ku Klux Klan members, American Military Generals and even Robbie Williams. Also on the bill was Jocelyn Stevenson, co-creator of Fraggle Rock and friend of Jim Henson; she is now campaigning for quality children’s television. Through Fraggle anecdotes and memories of Jim, her discussion of the artistic possibilities of children’s TV was nothing short of inspirational.
