Star of BBC2’s Mock The Week, Andy Parsons releases his brand new hilarious stand-up DVD Gruntled Live 2011 on Monday 14th November (Universal Pictures (UK).
Recorded as part of his celebrated sold out tour at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire, Gruntled Live 2011 sees the return of Andy’s clever politically inspired bemusements and disappointedly crushed enthusiasm. Mixing topical messages and personal anecdotes, Gruntled is the second DVD release from one of Britain’s foremost comedians.

Andy is Gruntled; from finding some underpants in a jar of mayonnaise to poorly-attended Edinburgh debuts, awful gigs, medical tales and relevant issues, such as the matter of offence in comedy, he found that the more of the country you see, the more chance your mayonnaise will contain underpants!
So this time Andy will be holding nothing back. Everything will be all hanging out. It will be nothing but the whole truth, slightly embellished. This is an intelligent, thought provoking show by one of our most astute comedians.
