Apparently the UK just cannot live too long without spending An Evening with Andy Hamilton and so he’s back for another short run of his ‘up close and personal’ show this summer, just to keep us happy.
In an evening of reminiscence and revelation, one of the most noted comedy writers and directors of the last few
decades looks back over his forty years in comedy and sixty(ish) years on the planet. Audiences will have the opportunity to ask Andy questions on any topic as he takes a look back at his very Extensive professional career in comedy.
Beginning in 1976 as a contributor to Radio 4’s Weekending, Andy went on to pick up a raft of awards for co- writing and co-directing such household TV classics as Drop The Dead Donkey and Outnumbered.
His TV satires turned up the heat on Westminster with Ballot Monkeys and Power Monkeys, and he and his co-writer Guy Jenkin also penned and directed the hit British comedy feature film What We Did On Our Holiday.
In the spring, their latest sitcom Kate & Koji, starring Brenda Blethyn and Jimmy Akingbola, will air on ITV.
Andy’s numerous TV and radio credits include Have I Got News For You, QI, Andy Hamilton Sort of Remembers, The News Quiz, I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue and Old Harry’s Game.
