How To Survive A Zombie Apocalypse

El Kay and I went to see How to Survive A Zombie Apocalypse at the Edinburgh Fringe last night, and I have to say straight up that I loved every minute of it. The show is presented in the style of a seminar by the noted zombologist Dr. Dale Seslick of the School of Survival. Dr. Seslick is an interesting character in himself with a Lloyd Grossman-esque accent and, most importantly, an encyclopaedic knowledge of how to deal with the walking dead. Nowhere else would you gain insight into the potential use of a hamster, hammered flat, as a weapon against the zombie hordes.

Dr, Seslick is ably assisted by three of his fellow experts from the School of Survival: Donald the survival expert, Judy the science expert, and Tristen the… well… they had a spare seat. Together these four experts have studied, categorised and prepared effective techniques to keep you safe from the zombie apocalypse.

I’m almost disappointed taht teh seminar only lasted an hour. The humour was excellent, and the subject matter both interesting and informative. I could easily have sat for another hour. The four player’s improvisation skills, despite the best efforts of some very persistent  audience members, were outstanding. Hell I enjoyed it that much I’ve even bought the book Dr Dale’s Zombie Dictionary: The A-Z Guide to Staying Alive.

In short: See the show, buy the book, and maybe, just maybe, you’ll survive the coming apocalypse.
