Charm Offensive

Armando Iannucci's Charm Offensive recordingIt's been a long while since Beth and I have been to a radio or TV recording; there's not really any excuse, especially since I work in Central London, and they're free to attend (apart from the cost of Beth's travel down).

I've always been a real fan of Armando Iannucci - one of the geniuses behind Alan Partridge and the producer of the legendary The Day Today, so when the opportunity came to see his latest show, Armanda Iannucci's Charm Offensive, I couldn't let it pass.

Armando was joined by Phill Jupitus, Lucy Porter and the marvellous Dave Gorman and my jaw was aching by the end of the hour-and-a-half recording. (It's available on Listen Again until the 8th, although you're unlikely to hear my guffaws, mainly because there was an irritatingly noisy man behind me.

Free Armando Iannucci-based entertainment.. it rarely gets better than that..

Oh - just for completeness, his latest work, The Thick Of It is on BBC Four - a very dry political comedy with unpleasant government advisors and swearing in it.
