The Best of the Now Show, 2001-2006 (BBC Audio)

by N/A


This title includes the highlights of the last five years of The Now Show, presented by Steve Punt and Hugh Dennis. For almost a decade, The Now Show has been casting a wry, sideways look at news, politics and current events. With its mix of stand-up, sketches and songs, and team of regulars including Jon Holmes, Laura Shavin, Mitch Benn and Marcus Brigstocke, the show has been a huge hit with both critics and an ever-growing band of fans. This compilation features some of the very best bits from 2001-2006 of this hugely popular Radio 4 series. Recorded in front of a live audience, Steve Punt and Hugh Dennis preside as the team tackle a wide range of subjects, from the war in Iraq, the environment and school league tables to 'The Git Wizard' (David Blaine), Gandalf (in 'Morrrrdorrrr') and the YMCA.The Sixties, Sting and sell-by dates. Politics and Paxman. Lame ducks and looting. And how would you get on with the Britishness Test? Everything is fair game in this topical, biting and satirical comedy series. Join Steve Punt and Hugh Dennis in a special, hour-long compilation celebrating The Nooooow Shooooow, and which has never been released on CD before.
