Next month The Guardian will be hosting an event which features two eye-wateringly iconic comedy pioneers ON STAGE TOGETHER, in the form of Steve Coogan and Armando Iannucci. Yes, seriously.
Iannucci has been a long-term friend, colleague and collaborator of Steve’s, and their joint credits include On The Hour/The Day Today, the Alan Partridge film, and various Partridge TV shows.
The Guardian Live event has been organised to mark the publication of Steve’s memoir Easily Distracted, the two of them will be joining forces on stage to discuss comedy and their (spectacular) comedy careers.
The event takes place on Thursday 15th October, 7pm–8.30pm at Central Hall Westminster, London, SW1H 9NH, and tickets are £20 each.
Tickets are already on sale to Guardian Patrons and Partners, and they go on general on sale from 10am on Friday 18 September. Demand for the event is likely to be high, so for your best chance to get tickets it’s recommended that you become a Patron or Partner (then you can nab some before they go on general sale). The cheapest way of doing this is to pay a single monthly subscription of £15; all the details are here.
