Hugh Janus

Rated 4.00/5 based on 1 reviews
HUGH JANUS is an obscure stand-up comedian working in a dump of a nightclub like an old time Humphrey Bogart movie set. His story is a non-conformist comedy of erotic self-indulgence and violently interwoven relationships around him. Humiliated by his wife and bullied by his boss, Janus’s scandalous performances win him success and infamy in a blaze of betrayal, drugs, sex, violence and murder. More

Hugh's life is a car crash in slow motion with a Rich-Hall-on-a-bad-trip commentary. We watch him hurtle blithely out of control from one near-disaster to another and wait for the inevitably poor outcome.
This is an easy to read, wry tale of a man who let's life happen to him, with minimal effort on his part.
