Celebrated la-di-da smartypants and Perrier Award Nominee Chris Addison presents, for your amusement and derision, a trawl through the very fabric of the Universe. Stopping only to fail to answer important questions such as "What are we made of?", "Did somebody forget to put something in the recipe?" and "Is this your vehicle, sir?", the big ponce will be spinning jokes, stories, lies, whimsy and nonsense in that order. Since he last troubled live audiences, Mr. Addison has appeared as Olly Reeder in Armando Iannucci’s semi-improvised political sitcom The Thick of It, and has written and recorded two series for BBC Radio 4, The Department and The Ape That Got Lucky. Well done him. "His scathing wit deserves comic-laureate status." The Sunday Times "He's brilliant. No question." The Times "There aren't enough stars for Addison's show." The Observer. He's funny.
