Andy Zaltzman


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 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.

When ordering your ticket, simply submit your request via the comments and special requests form. 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 late-November 2014, as Zaltzman – star of 5 Live’s 7 Day Sunday, 7 Day Saturday, sundry stuff on BBC Radio4, 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 & Lampooners. In 3D. Attend with care if allergic to contrived analogies.
