ANDY ZALTZMAN – SATIRIST FOR HIRE
Your chance to have the issues you care about satirised to order by one of Britain’s leading political comedians.
“Probably the best satirical comic we’ve produced in the last two decades. Intelligent, biting and silly” – Time Out, London
“Political comedy at its best” – The Sunday Times
Andy Zaltzman, the British-based half of the global smash hit topical podcast The Bugle, in which he co-lampoons the planet alongside The Daily Show’s John Oliver, returns to the Soho Theatre following sold-out runs in 2011 and 2012, to take satirical commissions from you, the public.
Your ticket will entitle you to submit, via email, a request for Zaltzman to address an issue that you feel requires satirising.
Do you have a global gripe, a British bellyache, or a personal peeve? Are you exasperated by economics, piqued by politics, or wound up about the world? Whether it is a general grumble or a specific bleat, send in your satirico-query. Zaltzman will butter your hot potato to order, and then serve it back to you at the show which you have booked to see.
After ordering your ticket, you will receive an email with instructions for how to submit your request. Realistically, Zaltzman will not have time to satirise everyone’s pet political grievances, so make it good.
This is all set to be the most interactive satirical stand-up show of mid-September 2013, as Zaltzman – star of 5 Live’s 7 Day Sunday, 7 Day Saturday, sundry stuff on Radio 4, and bafflingly/rightfully infrequent TV appearances (delete according to taste) – delivers freshly-hewn, individually-tailored comedic responses to the audience’s big issues.
All issues considered. Give or take. Certified by the British Institute of Satirists and Lampooners. In 3D. Attend with care if allergic to contrived analogies.
