Shorts at the Frontline Club will showcase moving, striking and also funny stories in an evening filled with short documentaries from different parts of the world covering a wide range of topics.
Martin Rowson walked onto the stage at the Frontline Club last night with a pint and Laurie Taylor. As you would expect from a satirist, the tone of Rowson’s presentation was humorous with generous lashings of acerbic wit thrown into the mix.

Cartoonist Martin Rowson will be speaking with Laurie Taylor at the Club about the power of satire, how he uses cartoons to create acerbic critiques of the world of politics and politicians and explaining how he goes about his work.
