The Imitation Game and John Finnemore's Flying Visit
more from same (British Comedy)
British ComedyThe following information was sent to the ISIHAC Newsletter mailing list:

Dear I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue Mailing List Member,

I bring news of a couple of ISIHAC-related shows you might be interested in coming to see…

The first is a brand new comedy series called ‘The Imitation Game’ devised by Graeme Garden and myself, which is being recorded at the newly re-furbished studios in the old BBC Television Centre building in White City.  Many of you were kind enough to attend the pilot in Elstree.

The show could be described as a version of ‘I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue’ for impressionists – and was inspired by appearances on ISIHAC by the likes of Rory Bremner and Jan Ravens.  We’re making it for ITV and it’s hosted by the brilliant Alexander Armstrong, with Rory Bremner and Debra Stephenson (of ‘Dead Ringers’ fame) as regulars, plus a host of impressionists appearing as guests, including Jon Culshaw, Alistair McGowan, Ronni Ancona, Lewis McLeod, Kate Robbins and many more.  Steve Brown (Glenn Ponder from ‘Knowing Me Knowing You with Alan Partridge’) and his band will provide musical accompaniment.

Our recording dates are on the evenings of:

Friday 9th March
Tuesday 13th March
Thursday 15th March
Friday 23rd March
Tuesday 27th March
Thursday 29th March

Tickets are free.  You need to be over 16 to apply and you should do so via the website of the ticketing company Standing Room Only, which is: www.sroaudiences.com

I’ve managed to ensure that members of this mailing list will receive priority seating if they input the codeword ‘Garden’ into the 'Comments and other information' box on the application form.

So, to apply for the special ISIHAC Mailing List tickets, visit the SRO Audiences
site now and apply. The website address again is www.sroaudiences.com

Graeme and I look forward very much to seeing you there.

Another show that will be well worth seeing is that of Radio 4 stalwart and Clue regular John Finnemore.  John is soon to tour his first ever live stage show, which is entitled ‘John Finnemore's Flying Visit’.  It features the cast of ‘John Finnemore’s Souvenir Programme’ and will be on the road in May and June. These are the dates:

17th May - Brighton - Brighton Dome. Tickets will go on general sale on Friday 23rd February
18th May - High Wycombe - Wycombe Swan
20th May - Hastings - White Rock Theatre
21st May - Preston - Preston Guildhall
22nd May - York - Grant Opera House
26th May - Cheltenham - Cheltenham Town Hall
30th May - Birmingham - New Alexandra Theatre
3rd June - Richmond - Richmond Theatre
6th June - Swindon - Wyvern Theatre
7th June - Leamington Spa - Royal Spa Centre
8th June - Tunbridge Wells - Assembly Hall Theatre
10th June - Dorking - Dorking Halls
13th June - Basingtoke - Basingstoke Anvil
15th June - Edinburgh - The Queen's Hall

All John’s shows start at 7.30pm and finish around 10pm (with a 20 minute interval). The show is kid friendly, so bring the whole family along. Full details of the tour can be found on John’s website: http://johnfinnemore.blogspot.co.uk/

And that about the size of it.  I’ll be emailing again in March with details on the next series of ‘I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue’, which we’ll be recording over three dates in May, June and possibly July.  Thank you for listening!

With best wishes,
Jon Naismith
Producer, "I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue"  [i][/i]

Tim in forthcoming audio version of "The Importance of Being Earnest"
more from same (British Comedy)
British ComedyBarnaby Eaton-Jones reported this information on Facebook:

THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EDITED...

The sound design and final edit of the full-cast audio version of 'The Importance of Being Earnest', featuring Tim Brooke-Taylor as Lady Bracknell, has been delivered by the incomparable Joseph Fox. It is a beautiful listen! There a handful of lines, added by me, to turn this from a stage production into an audio; where I had a Wilde time impersonating Oscar and nobody spotted by bon mots (I always keep them well hidden). So, that was a relief!

Keep your ears clean for the upcoming release from Spiteful Puppet.

* "It Was Alright in the 1970’s", a documentary with contributions from Bill Oddie, will be repeated on more4HD on Sunday, Feb 4th at 23:05  Program description: "In the final episode of the series, narrator Matt Lucas looks back once more at the 1970s. The theme this time is Living Dangerously, revealing more television to leave viewers wide-eyed and shaking their heads. In the world according to TV, the 1970s was a dangerous place where it was still perfectly legal for a husband to beat his wife, and a parent or teacher to beat a child. DJ and presenter Tony Blackburn climbed into a cage to sing to four fully-grown lions. On the Isle of Man, there was a feeling that if they banned the birch it would lead to moral ruin. Meanwhile, mainstream comedians were perfectly comfortable making jokes about domestic violence. Spike Milligan's comedy lived so dangerously, that even in the 70s his multi-racial sitcom The Melting Pot was considered too much and was pulled from the air. Responding to the clips are Tony Blackburn, Bill Oddie, Jennie Bond, Samira Ahmed and Elis James."
