upcoming shows

Someone has left an interesting if slightly cryptic comment on my blog. It seems to be a list of people appearing in the upcoming shows.

The list of 15 performers includes the eight who have already recorded shows for the new season. Tony Hawks, Tim Rice, Sue Perkins and Pam Ayres were one team, Paul Merton, Gyles Brandreth, Kit Hesketh-Harvey and Shappi Khorsandi the other.

The remaining seven include returns from some of our favourites - Graham Norton, Jenny Eclair, Stephen Fry, Charles Collingwood and Janey Godley.

If you're like me, the name of Stephen Fry is especially welcome - in my opinion one of the best JAM players ever. Graham and Jenny are also always very good.

The names of two newcomers are also there. Suki Webster is an actor and improviser who appears frequently with the Comedy Store Players and Paul Merton's Impro Chums. She has also been Paul Merton's partner for many years.

Hardeep Singh Kohli is a Scottish comedian and broadcaster.

I think we should take the list with a grain of salt as I don't know where this anonymous person got the list. But if you're like me you're hungry for any news.

Recordings have been scheduled for July 20th and 21st, and presumably again at Edinburgh in August. The new broadcasts begin on July 27.
