What do you do when something grabs your hand in a pitch-dark underwater cave or when your aircraft engine fails above the Amazon jungle or when a doctor tells you about fish that leave gunshot-like wounds in their victims? And why is it all worthwhile?
Man-sized piranhas, fish that electrocute, nine-foot river sharks (yes, river sharks) … You’ve seen the programmes; now find out what it takes to deliver these outlandish creatures to the TV screen, with video footage, tall stories and on-stage demonstrations.

There will also be a chance for audiences to put their own questions to Jeremy – but catching him when he’s not on an Amazon riverboat or living in a cockroach-infested hut is just like catching a fish: you must be in the right place at the right time….(see tour schedule below)
