Craig Campbell Live!

How much could 'Ludo' the dog on my poster have in common with his namesake 'Ludwig van B'!? Compared to King Billy C's but in choosing between talking down the compliment’s obvious hyperbole with humility as a gentleman would, or flogging it relentlessly as a desperate egotist with a black hole for a soul would, I've chosen the latter. Come to my show, or I'll hurt the dog!
