Some Crouch End Festival events

Joan’s Adventures in Adland

Wednesday 3 June, 7.30pm,  Mezzanine Level, ArtHouse Crouch End

Just ahead of the official start date – a taster of the festival fun to follow!

Join author, one time comedian and former advertising guru Joan Ellis as she leads us down the rabbit hole into the mad, bad world of advertising. Joan recounts tales from her time spent at a top London advertising agency writing award-winning ads for big brand names. A career highlight was casting a black and white moggie as Humphrey Bogart for a cat food commercial! She’ll also tell us about her foray into comedy – setting up and performing in her own comedy club – and teaching comedian Noel Fielding about advertising before encouraging him to showcase his creative talents on a wider stage. Joan will also read from her book I am Ella. Buy me. The event is FREE but seats are limited and on a first come first served basis. Read more about Joan’s work: www.https://joan-ellis.com
