Andy Parsons, star of BBC TWO’s Mock the Week and BBC ONE’s Live at the Apollo, his set to release his much anticipated hilarious debut stand-up DVD Britain’s Got Idiots Live on Monday 23rd November (Universal Pictures UK).
In the new offering from the topical funnyman and Mock the Week regular, Britain’s Got Idiots Live features Andy at his acerbic best as gets off his chest what infuriates him about living in Britain.
Satirical, witty and sharply entertaining, this DVD will challenge your views on the things you thought you didn’t even care about.
Recorded at the Lyric Theatre in London’s West End as part of his sell-out Citizens! tour, Britain’s Got Idiots Live illustrates how, as citizens of the world we could change it, if we really wanted to.....if only we could be bothered.
No subject escapes Andy’s finely tuned satirical gaze as he singles out the foibles of today’s Britain, from merchant bankers to traffic wardens.
As well as first rate comedy gags, viewers can expect banter-a-plenty with the audience, including a sensational candid camera send-up, and an unexpected dance routine which has to be seen to be believed!
Britain’s Got Idiots Live is a truly thought provoking and fulfilling show by one of our most astute comedians.
