Paul Merton's standing as a leading wit and a comic entertainer has, in recent years, owed little to his reputation as a stand-up comedian, although that is where he began. He is now best known as one of the two regular contributors on the long-running BBC panel show 'Have I Got News For You?'
'HIGNFY' is the programme that every TV panel show conceived since has tried to emulate. It was not the first of its kind but, now into its 42nd series and 22nd year, it is the longest running BBC panel show ever. In that time, Ian Hislop and Paul Merton have book-ended every panel assembled and, without fail, have been relied upon for many of the shows finest contributions, including Merton's classic look of utter confusion when Hislop tries to be 'down with the kids' and quote a Lady Gaga song or Tinie Tempah lyric.
After more than a decade away, Paul Merton is returning to stand-up (after a fashion) later this month, with a show that promises 'sketches, music, magic, variety and dancing girls'. The 'Out of My Head' show, which toured the UK during the spring this year, will feature three of his Comedy Store cohorts Lee Simpson, Richard Vranch (the comedy pianist from 'Whose Line') and Suki Webster. It promises to be simultaneously learned, informative and bonkers. And cheaper if you read on because we have links to discounted seats!
