Out To Lunch
I’ve recently got back from London where I was at a recording of Out To Lunch for BBC Radio 2. I spend most of the afternoon around London. I went to Clapham for no reason, Picadilly Circus to see the advertising screens ‘cos I don’t remember seeing the in person any time before. I then found out how close together some underground stations are on the surface by walking back from there to Tottenham Court road while just wandering randomly.
Just across the road from the Soho Theatre, where the recording was, I went down a side streat, , and saw this. It’s a nose stuck to a wall at about 2nd storey level. How odd.
Later, at the recording, I now know where the BBC licence fee goes. It pais for the 2 free drinks for each audience member at this recording. I guess it’s go get us in a mood for laughing at some of the more weird comedy moments.
If you want to listen to the one I was at the recording of it will be broadcase on BBC Radio 2 at 1300 on Saturday 20th October 2007
October 04, 2007
To my great annoyance I just spilt red wine on the carpet of my room after saying to myself, “must be carefull not to spill any”. Well that’s not the most annoying bit. The most annoying bit is that I now don’t have a red wine stain, now I have a clean spot that means I’m going to have to clean the rest of the carpet. Hmph.
Well, it’s not been too long since the last post and not much has changed. I’ve been to the gym a couple more times and quite enjoyed it. I should have gone tonight but I think I pushed something a bit to hard last time ‘cos my left calf hurts, so I didn’t go.
Tomorrow I’m going to attempt to get into work an hour early so that I can leave early to be able to get to BBC Television Centre for 5:30. I’m going to the filming of another new comedy show (first one was Crawford Park). This one is in a similar vein to Crawford Park and is called Lab Rats.
A sitcom set in a university science laboratory written by Chris Addison and Carl Cooper. Somewhere in the tangle of rooms and corridors that is the St. Dunstan’s College science building work, and for the most part live, the occupants of the Arnolfini Research Laboratory. The Arnolfini is used by the University for flashy-looking projects, random research ideas and as a revenue-raising lab for hire.
The show stars Chris Addison, Selina Cadell, Geoff McGivern, Jo Enright, Helen Moon and Dan Tetsell.
I’m doing well with TV & radio tickets recetly. I went to a filming of “Bea & Sam’s Big Spread”
Bea and Sam invite you to their raucous show, as they hold celebrity culture by its ankles and shake it… hard. Through their charming, honest, self-deprecating stand up, savage sketches and ridiculous pastiche of songs from eighties cheese to West End hits, this is a toxic concoction
at Teddington Studios a couple of weeks ago and I also have tickets for a recording of “Out To Lunch”
Radio 2’s leading comedy showcase returns for a fourth series. Join brand new host Russell Kane (Big Brothers Big Mouth guest host, “His rise to meteoric heights is about to begin” Metro) for the best stand-up and sketches to hit the BBC this Autumn.
for BBC Radio 2 at a theatre tomorrow (with free drinks), a recording of another new comedy called ”...And Then You Die”
’...and then you Die’ is a brand new comedy panel show all about why life is one big disappointment! Alongside a panel of both up and coming comedians and some well known faces is our host. Who just happens to be a puppet.It’s funny, outrageous and just slightly miserable.
in mid October and then a recording of “Not Going Out”
Now that his flatmate Kate has moved back to America, Lee (Lee Mack) is faced with homelessness when his best mate and landlord Tim (fellow stand-up Tim Vine) puts the apartment up for sale. Unable to buy the flat himself, Lee is forced to rent the spare room from the flat’s new owner, Tim’s sister Lucy (Sally Bretton). Unsurprisingly, the arrangement turns out to be far from perfect
at the end of the month. Should all be a lot of fun.
Anyways. If I’m going to be getting in to work for 8am tomorrow I need to be getting to sleep soon so that’s all from me for now.
