This exciting meetup is one that I really wish I could attend, but sadly will be happening when I'm off to Canada for the holidays. However, I strongly encourage all of you lucky enough to get some tickets to go on over to this one, because it promises to be a very entertaining evening!
Catherine Beazley, one of our lovely members, has been working on this nature-themed comedy show (she mentioned it at a previous meetup that some of you attended) and has suggested it as a meetup. Catherine says this about the evening:
"The show will be presented by Chris Packham with two teams made up of comics/naturalists/comics that are amateur naturalists (think QI but strictly nature based material). It should be a good giggle!
If you’d like to come, please go to http://www.sroaudiences.com/ where you will find ‘never mind the woodcocks’ under the ‘current shows’ section. If you’d like to come and have any problems getting tickets, please let me (Catherine Beazley) know. Any questions, give me a shout! Doors open at 6.45pm."
***PLEASE NOTE: You have to apply for these tickets, and there is a limited supply. So when you sign up for the meetup, please go to the above link straight away and apply for your tickets. Again, if you have trouble securing tickets please let Catherine know, as she says, and she might be able to help you out***
A description of the show from the SRO website:
Can a cockroach live for a week without its head? Can an octopus get an erection? Can a comedian tell the difference between badger and bat poo?
Join wildlife expert and TV presenter Chris Packham for the pilot of his hilarious new comedy wildlife panel show,Nevermind The Woodcocks, and you might well find out.
Our host Chris is joined by our two celebrity teams as they compete over a series of funny animal-based rounds.
Nevermind The Woodcocks is the new mischievous comedy panel show that proves what a completely entertaining place the natural world really is. A place where fact is always funnier than fiction.
The pilot is being recorded in London on Monday 17th December 2012 at The Rada Studio Theatre (formerly The Drill Hall), 16 Chenies Street, WC1E 7EX (nearest tube Goodge Street). If you would like to join us for a night of fun, then apply now!
