coming up on Wednesday's show....the comedy of Reginald D Hunter, Afro Soul band Feather in session, in her latest novel "The Fallout", Margaret Scott interweaves the stories of four women coping with post bank crash Ireland and the latest biography of Paul McCartney - will it reveal anything new?
On tonight’s Arena we review the films The Book Thief, Nymphomanic Vol 1 & 2 and Non-Stop, and Abie Philbin Bowman looks at the work of British satirist Chris Morris, including a rare appearance with the late Peter Cook...
Christopher Morris is an English satirist, writer, director, actor, voice actor, and producer, known for his black humour, surrealism and controversial subject matter. He has been hailed for his "uncompromising, moralistic drive" by the Brish Film Institute. His tendency to avoid the media spotlight has seen him become one of the more enigmatic figures in British comedy.
He burst onto the airwaves in the 1990s with his satirical news shows ‘On the Hour’ and ‘The Day Today’. His breakthrough was a radio show called ‘On the Hour’ – which was a satirical news programme.
He is returning to our screens next Saturday Mar 1, at 10.00 p.m. on BBC2 as part of Stewart Lee’s Comedy Vehicle.
