Comedy Question Time
Chair: Dan Patterson
This event took place on Saturday 25th February 2017 as part of Jewish Book Week 2017.
The ebullient Dan Patterson, co-creator of Mock the Week, presents an evening of irreverent entertainment. Dan and the audience pose the questions – Hugh Dennis, Maureen Lipman and Simon Schama come up with the answers. Will this hotshot comedic crew have the spirit, stamina and chutzpah to outsmart all of us?
An earlier version of this listing included Sindhu Vee. Unfortunately she is now no longer able to participate.
With thanks to Kate and David Birk
