Festive Edition 2014

No Pressure to be Festive: Alistair Barrie and Nick Revell host the final show of the year, with a lively panel of Jo Jo Smith, Michael Deacon, Hal Cruttenden and first-timer James O’Brien. Music from Paul Thorne. By the way - in keeping with the slightly unconventional nature of this month’sshow we have included Alistair’s regular and largely visual feature, Subterranean Homesick News, in which he supplies the punchlines on large pieces of card. All you need to know is that all the punchlines in this version are blank white pages. Yes, we’ve given away the payoffs. But it still works!
