‘World Of The Weird, With Alan Moore’s Beard’ To Begin Filming In September

The unkempt beard of ‘V For Vendetta’ writer Alan Moore is to star in its own TV show on Channel 4.  The programme is thought to be based on “Alfred Hitchcock Presents”, and is said feature the beard sitting in a leather arm chair by a roaring fire, or striding purposefully through Highgate cemetery in a Barbour jacket and wellington boots.

The beard often sleeps through interviews and book signings.

Normally shunning interviews and often sleeping or meditating through radio and TV presentations, the beard made the decision to collaborate with Channel 4 with the full support of Alan Moore, for a one-off series of short films about the occult.

The comic book author recently admitted that he couldn’t have created many of his popular books without the help of his faithful chin warmer.

The author credited the hairy masterpiece with much of the inspiration for, and editing of his novel ‘Voice Of The Fire’, as well as several of his best loved comic books.

“I brought the beard to life with a Chaos magic ritual in the early 1970’s,”

Moore explained.

“I’d already tried it with one of my eyebrows, but something went wrong and it kept trying to write Jeffery Archer fan fiction, so I had to banish its pathetic essence into a vessel of brass and start again. I used a combination of Solomonic and Enochian magic to awaken and control it, and then I fed it on raw mandrake and wormwood, until it was strong enough to become my assistant. We’ve had an ideal working relationship ever since. I would sometimes fall asleep at my typewriter, and when I woke up, the beard would have corrected all of my spelling mistakes and brainstormed the next chapter for me,”

‘World Of The Weird, With Alan Moore’s Beard’ is due to begin filming this September.
