Truth is stranger than fiction. When journalist David Farrier came across a an online reference to a fringe sport in Los Angeles called “competitive endurance tickling” he thought he’d lit upon another amusingly weird topic for his lighthearted reports on New Zealand television. The pop-culture journalist had reported on frog-eating survivalists and a Donkey Lady but these were run of the mill stories compared to the strange subculture of obsessive tickling that he would uncover. Mixing Raymond Chandler with Michael Moore, the edge-of-seat Tickled is a sharp detective tale that attempts to sweep away the cobwebs from one of the endless, bizarre corners of the internet.
