TV comedian Tony Hawks tries to win a bet by hitch-hiking around the circumference of Ireland in one calendar month. With a fridge.
'I hereby bet Tony Hawks the sum of One Hundred Pounds that he cannot hitchhike round the circumference of Ireland, with a fridge, within one calendar month'
A foolhardy attempt to win a drunken bet led to Tony Hawks having one of the most unforgettable experiences of his life. Joined by his trusty travelling-companion-cum-domestic-appliance, he found himself in the midst of a remarkable, inspirational and, at times, downright silly adventure.
In their month of madness, Tony and his fridge surfed together; entered a batchelor festival; and one of them had sex without the other knowing. The fridge got christened, and they even met the poorest king on Earth.
An absurd story of an extraordinary adventure, Round Ireland with a Fridge follows the fearless pair as they battle towards Dublin and a breathtaking finale that is moving, uplifting, and a fitting conclusion to the whole ridiculous affair.
"Not just brilliantly written, but far too hilarious to read alone in a public place" Sunday Independent, Ireland
One night, whilst a tad tired and emotional, TV comedian Tony Hawks made a bet with a friend that he could hitch-hike around the island of Ireland in one calendar month - with a fridge. This is the colourful and highly amusing story of his adventures during that month. This title has certainly caught the reading public's imagination in trade paperback, and has now sold some 50, 000 copies in that format. 8pp b / w illus.
