Gyles Brandreth in Blah-Blah-Land!
They say all political careers end in tears... in Gyles Brandreth's case it's tears of laughter as the author, broadcaster, former MP and government whip takes us on a hilarious roller-coaster ride around some of his favourite places – from the green benches of Westminster to the green rooms of the West End and the fabulous Frome Festivall on its opening night.
With a cast-list that runs from Oscar Wilde to The Queen – to say nothing of Miley Cyrus and Michael Jackson – this is a wonderfully witty and revealing evening's entertainment from an award-winning raconteur with unique tales to tell from his unlikely life in the theatre, on television, in journalism and politics.
Now best known as a reporter with The One Show on BBC1 and a regular on Radio 4's Just a Minute, Gyles Brandreth's career has ranged from being a Lord Commissioner of the Treasury to starring in the West End in his own award-winning musical Zipp! He has also featured on Countdown, QI, Have I Got News for You, Desert Island Discs and This Is Your Life.
'Gyles Brandreth is brilliant... incredibly funny, wildly indiscreet' The Daily Mail
'Brilliant. A serious talent for making people laugh' The Daily Mirror
'Not merely does he know how to spin a yarn – he has a touching access to the secrets of the human heart' The Times
