The Patterer is a hilarious romp through jolly old England. It imagines what today's TV news would have looked like if it had been invented by a smart-aleck news guy back in the days of Charles Dickens.
It's London, 1765. Leeds Merriweather is scratching out a living as a common street performer, a patterer, using his wit and storytelling skills to sell newspapers and all manner of literature.
Inspired by a drunken, chance encounter with Benjamin Franklin, Leeds assembles a zany cast of characters to become history s first celebrity newscaster.But at the peak of his meteoric rise to fame and fortune, Leeds has to risk it all for the love of a conniving wench.
