  • ALAN CARR’S NEW AUTOBIOGRAPHY ALANATOMY TO LAUNCH IN OCTOBER

    Alan Carr will be launching his new book Alanatomy this October. One of Britain's most successful and treasured comedians. His unique humour and effortless stage presence have earned him a catalogue of awards including Best Chat Show host at the publicly voted 2015 NTA's, winner of the 2013 BAFTA for Best Entertainment Performance and 2013 British Comedy Award for Best Comedy Entertainment Personality. In previous years he has garnered a clutch of awards from the 2012 National Television Award for Best Talk Show, and the 2012 Loaded LAFTA Award for Best Stand Up and the 2010 TV Choice Awards for Best Entertainment Show. There were also nominations for Best New British Comedy & Best Comedy Entertainment Personality at the 2009 British Comedy Awards.

    Alan said: 'Alanatomy is the chance for you to get beneath my skin and see the real me because, and to continue the anatomical theme if I may, this showbiz existence can sometimes feel like an autopsy - picked at, probed and scrutinized with every inch of your body held up for analysis, but unlike an actual autopsy, you are very much alive.

    So I give you Alanatomy: My Autobiography. I am laying myself out on the slab for your entertainment; naked, stripped bare. Grab your scalpel, peel back the skin and go deep, have a good old probe around at my life so far. Yes, you are going to find guts, a fair bit of cheek, maybe even a little bit of gristle, but hopefully, you'll find a whole lot of heart.'

    You can pre-order the book now at Amazon.

  • ANGELA BARNES LANDS NEW RADIO SHOW YOU CAN’T TAKE IT WITH YOU

    Angela Barnes has landed her first Radio 4 series commission. Based on her critically acclaimed debut show at the Edinburgh Fringe 2014, You Can't Take It With You, Angela shares the big stuff she's thinking about: life, love, family, work and death.

    The four episode series is in part tribute to Angela's late father, an enormous character - (he was a sex shop manager, naturist, and a big fan of caravans and pranks), and a heavy influence on Angela who taught her a carpe diem approach to life. His motto: You Can't Take It With You.

    Angela said, 'I'm dead chuffed to have a series on Radio 4. I've been a BBC Radio 4 comedy geek for as long as I can remember so it means so much that they've let me have a go.'

    The show airs in fifteen minute episodes on Wednesdays from August 10th at 11:00pm.
