Effortlessly uncool.

Have I Got News For You

Yesterday I went to a recording of Have I Got News For You. I’d been to radio recordings before but this was my first TV show, and I have to say it was great fun. The half-hour show took about two and a half hours to record, and I got the distinct impression that this was unusually long, although it was all funny stuff so I’m not complaining. I shall be watching it so that I can see which bits they keep, and also so that I have the pleasure of seeing the back of my head in the audience shots. Exciting, huh?

I’d definitely go again, but as an experience I think that radio recordings are somewhat better. You don’t have to queue for hours in a howling gale, you get to hang around in a theatre bar instead, and the atmosphere is rather more relaxed.
