John Oliver & Andy Zaltzman


John Oliver & Andy Zaltzman

Another show from the Fringe's sharpest, most inventive comedic minds. John Oliver's acute social awareness is juxtaposed with a boyish sense of mischief, to prove it is possible to be thought provoking and hilarious in equal measure. John wrote and starred in the groundbreaking GASH (Channel 4),and Mock the Week (BBC2) .Together with Andy Zaltzman and Chris Addison, John has created the hit radio series The Department (BBC Radio 4). Andy Zaltzman has quickly established himself in the vanguard of British stand-up with his unique brand of political comedy. Swiftly moving from one theme to the next with an articulate and intelligent stream of hilarious logic, Andy has the ability to make you listen as well as laugh.

A wonderfully intelligent comic. - Evening Standard

Wonderfully inventive...his deadpan delivery has an odd, idiosyncratic appeal. - Stephanie Merritt, The Observer
