Rob Carter as Christopher Bliss

From Chortle's Fast Fringe

Here’s comedian Rob Carter reading a ghost story in the guise of terrible novelist Christopher Bliss.

Handcuffs For A Poltergeist is taken from his Edinburgh Fringe show, Writing Wrongs, which is on at the Voodoo Rooms at 14:55 daily.

Carter has described his alter-ego as ‘a very nice, polite, well-mannered man who is not very talented but isn’t aware of it… a very bad writer who thinks he is very good’.

He has run a regular ‘literary salon’ night in London as the character, interviewing real writers about their work.

This clip was recorded at Chortle's Fast Fringe in London.
