on Monday's show....live music from Declan Sinnott, actor/playwright Michael Collins chats about his new play "Magpies On The Pylon", the latest from American pop culture writer/video games fanatic Ernest Cline and "Ohio Impromptu" at the Happy Days Enniskillen International Beckett Festival
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.
