Wow, that was so fun! Just got back from seeing The Kumars at Number 42 being filmed at Television Centre. Cast was excellent (watching Meera Syal fluff a joke by laughing too much is so cool) and the impromptu gags off screen were wonderful. Frankie Dettori and Joanna Lumley made great guests, Frankie in particular was very entertaining – when the cameras were off he seemed to relax even more and continued to chat for the audience.
And that’s not forgetting the warm-up act… I still can’t believe these things are free. Forget the cinema or theatre, just book some tickets for a TV show and turn up for a great night out. (And yes, it is smaller in real life, of course. Had to get the cliché in somewhere.)
Shout out to my wonderful cousin who turned up with many, many shopping bags and was surprised to discover a cloakroom service was not provided.
Where did you get the tickets from?
I’ve had some BB tickets from TheApplauseStore before, but wasn’t able to make it.
hay i went on there website (BBC) and tryed to book some tickets but there was one thing i didn’t understand!, what the hell they mean when they say "ticket does not insure a seat" cos do they mean that i have to stand up through the whole thing, or i dont get in unless i get there early or what????
now i know im god but even i dont understand the BBC sometimes!
The Hat Trick website:
We’re going to see Room 101 soon too
They overbook people so you need to get there early. Loads of people reserve tickers and then don’t turn up. 😯
You can also get tickets from
see thats how people are you give them something for free and the’ll always abuse that privalage
and you wonder why theres pain and suffering in this world, well there you have the reason
