My name is Len Bakerloo and I am a retired hedge fund manager.
Actually that’s a stage name. My real name is easy enough to figure out so I’ll leave it a mystery for now.
Speaking of mysteries, here’s a question I’ve had since childhood:
“Why is there so much bullshit?”
Jon Stewart said in his Daily Show farewell, ‘Bullshit is everywhere’ and I can tell you there is no more concentrated bullshit than the bullshit you will find on Wall Street.
I know because I worked there for 30-years. What’s more, I have an MBA from a prestigious business school where they taught me how to be evil and that crime pays.
In (Cut the Bullshit) Len Bakerloo Speaks Truth to Power, I will explain what makes bullshit so insidious, pervasive, and powerful. I’ll relay two secrets my dad gave me about how to make money without getting into trouble. You will go home with a copy of my Cut the Bullshit Game to play with your friends and relatives.
If you want to learn how to become a better bullshitter and become wealthy at the expense of others then this is NOT the show for you.
But if you’d like to learn how to talk back to bullshitters and avoid getting hurt by their bullshit then I hope you will come see my show.
I am performing in July in New York at 59E59 Street Theaters on July 12, 13, and 19, 2016. Tickets are $15 and you can get them here. I am also performing for free at the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe Festival from August 5-29 (except 16 and 17) and you can find more information here.
I guarantee my work. In Edinburgh that’s easy because the show is free. In New York City the theater charges admission but if afterward you feel I haven’t delivered value for money then just let me know and I will personally refund your purchase price. In addition, I am charitable, meaning that if you are poor I will also refund your money simply because you need it more than me.
In addition to these scheduled shows, I can perform Cut the Bullshit at your college, conference, or corporate event. Just write: Len@LenBakerloo.com

Cut the Bullshit Game
Every member of the audience at (Cut the Bullshit) Len Bakerloo Speaks Truth to Power will receive a copy of the Cut the Bullshit Game.
The Cut the Bullshit Game is played between two players, a Bullshitter and a Bullshittee. The instructions for play are printed on two sides of a single card.
Here are the instructions for the Bullshitter:
And here are the instructions for the Bullshittee:
We’ve intentionally blurred out this side of the card because it describes the proprietary Len Bakerloo method for detecting bullshit that is still under development and that we eventually want you to pay through the nose to learn.
However, while it is still Play-Testing phase you might be able to persuade us to send you some of the game cards if you will help us test them out. We are especially interested in teachers and coaches who can use them with a large number of people.
