Fancy coming to watch a Heresy recording? There are tickets left for the shows at 6.30pm on Thursday March 26th and Thursday April 2nd, and apparently people from my blog can have “priority seats” if they’d like to come. No charge, of course. If you don’t know Heresy, the official blurb is this:
“Victoria Coren hosts the sixth series of the BBC Radio 4 discussion programme which dares to commit HERESY. Victoria chairs a team of highly opinionated panellists who will use their wit and wisdom to argue against narrow-minded thinking and received opinions of the day. Each week a panel of celebrity guests will join Victoria. The received opinions to be torn to shreds will include topics from the worlds of news, sport, art and popular culture. Classics from last series include: ‘Short men look silly with tall wives’, ‘The Queen is marvellous but the other Royals are a waste of Space’ and ‘Barbara was the sexy one in the Good Life’.”
Among the guests we’ve got comedians, of course, and also a few artists, writers, musicians… It should be sparky and funny and faintly controversial. If you would like to come to one of the shows above, you’d have to be at the venue in central London by 6pm, and it would be all finished by 7.30pm.
If you fancy it, please use the ‘leave a reply’ form below to send a message including your (real!) email address, how many tickets you’d like, and for which of the dates. And just in case there’s a swarm of requests and I have to create a sudden “competition whittle”, please also sum up in one line WHY you’d like to come!
These ‘replies’ WON’T be put up on the website; we need your email address so that somebody can write back to let you know if you posted in time to get tickets, and if so, how to collect them on the night. I don’t have an unlimited supply, so please try to post in the next few days if you’d like to come.
Special note to John from the ‘Wrong To Laugh?’ thread: for the April 2nd episode, one of the guests is John Cooper Clarke…. (Nb. Guests on the March 26th episode include the brilliant Arthur Smith and Grayson Perry.)
