Times Like These

By 25th of June 20102010, Comedy

Times Like These is the comedy panel quiz testing the team’s knowledge of popular culture over the decades.

This episode we look back at childhood toys & cartoons in “Growing Pains”, trawl through celebrity oddities in “Celebrity Landfill” & pay attention to old public service announcements in “Safety First”. Only to find some of the panel’s toys were hugely inappropriate, the current political landscape is a remake of Star Wars & the dinosaurs may have been wiped out by pornographic magazines. Mog McIntyre keeps an eye on our feuding panellists with 80/90’s Team Captain Tom Eames joined by Sophie Petzal, writer & actor for numerous productions including comedy sketch show The Unprofessionals & darkly comic play Cause Celebre. Joining 60’s/70’s team captain Mathew Priest is BIRSt’s very own Programme Controller & Rock Climber Christopher Brooke.

Producer, Writer & Chair – Mog McIntyre. Team Captains: Tom Eames & Mathew Priest. Joined by: Sophie Petzal & Christopher Brooke. Assistant Producers (Live Recording): Matt Harrison & Emma Houlton. Additional Material by Dougal Patmore.
