JOHN FINNEMORE’S FLYING VISIT

John Finnemore, writer and star of the multi-award winning BBC Radio shows “John Finnemore’s Souvenir Programme”, “Cabin Pressure” and “John Finnemore’s Double Acts” brings his new live show to the stage!

With the help of special guests from Souvenir Programme, John will be performing brand new sketches, some old favourites and – unless someone can stop him – quite possibly a song. Plus a live stage appearance from Cabin Pressure’s Arthur Shappey: the most cheerful, least helpful steward in the skies. Kids welcome, so long as they laugh in the right places. Actually, that goes for adults too.

‘One of the best written, cast, acted and directed comedies on anywhere.’ The Daily Telegraph

‘John Finnemore’s Souvenir Programme is the best sketch show in years – on television or radio.’  Radio Times
