Andy Zaltzman

21Oct09

I met political comedian and podcaster Andy Zaltzman yesterday. He was doing a work-in-progress preview for his upcoming radio series Andy Zaltzman: History of The Third Millennium.

Frankly I love the guy. OK, it was a bit hit and miss on the night, but that’s the whole point of a work-in-progress show. What I think is great, though, is his ability to weave political comment with outright hilarious bullshit and what are essentially dad-puns. I had a brief chat with him afterwards as well, and he’s a thoroughly decent chap.

If you haven’t listened to The Bugle podcast with Zaltzman and John Oliver, I urge you to tune in. And if you can find it, The Department was one of the best radio shows of the last 10 years.

Favourite joke of the night? “…like tippexing a bear, I think that polarises opinion…”
