Back To London
Has it really been over a month since my last post. Hmm.
This week is going to be a busy week. I’ve got a ticket to a recording of “Two Pints of Laget and a Packet of Crisps” this evening, then tomorrow I’m going to a recording of “Thank God You’re Here”.
Thank God You’re Here is a brand new Paul Merton comedy show! In each episode four celebrities are dressed in an appropriate costume and must walk through a door into a situation which they know nothing about. They are greeted by the show’s ensemble cast and always with the line “Thank God you’re here”. They must then rely on their wits alone to survive the rest of the scene. At the end of each show a winner is announced. It’s the funniest, most original show on TV!
Then on Tuesday a recording of “Miranda Hart’s House Party” for Radio 4.
This British Comedy Award nominee promises an eclectic serving of comedy, song, dance and other guests. She’s had lots of rave reviews which is a very good reason for Radio 4 to record her house party. This lady of laughs has starred in TV’s Not Going Out and Hyperdrive. So laugh yourself warm this winter with Miranda Hart.
Then another recording of “Two Pints …” next Sunday and then “The Late Edition” which is LIVE.
Late night, topical and funny. Newsnight with jokes. And the only totally live comedy on television. Presented each week by Marcus Brigstocke with special guests. LIVE on BBC 4 on 29th November at 10:30 – 11:00
Oh, and speaking of Miranda Hart being in “Not Going Out” that was very funny. It was the christmas episode which was quite fun, and it’s got me in a bit of a christmassy mood now. I’m still agianst shops playing christmas music before December starts but then … what can you do?
The warm-up comedian at Not Going Out was the same one as at the recording of Crawford Park that I went to as my 1st TV recording. This did mean that I already knew half his jokes but nevermind. It was much more funny when Lee Mack did a bit of standup, dressed as a Policeman, during a long costume change, then handed over to Tim Vine, who was dressed as a Gangster, to do a bit more.
All in all I’m really enjoying living this close to London. It means I can get to a recording any evening for only about £5, rather than the £15 from Maidstone or the £30 from Coventry.
