ANDY ZALTZMAN: Armchair Revolutionary

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7208/6803469394_a565bc70da_o.jpg The disenfranchised masses of the worldhave risen against oppression, teamed up with technology, and fought forfreedom. In a joke-packed showencompassing revolutions, economic idiocy, political and social upheaval athome and around the globe, a well-crafted Edith Piaf gag and some puns aboutdogs, Zaltzman taps his British coffee table in approval, and wonders if he’dhave the cast-iron cojones to do likewise. Co-star alongside John Oliver of theworldwide smash hit podcast The Bugle, regular on BBC 5Live’s 7 DaySunday, sporadic appearer on Radio 4, and ESPNCricinfo.com’s leadingcricket satirist, Zaltzman comes to The Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre following a storming 2011 EdinburghFringe run and a totally sold-out one-night tour of Bangladesh’s only comedyclub. “Probably the best satirical comic we’veproduced in the last two decades. Intelligent, biting and silly” − TimeOut “Political comedy at its best” – SundayTimes
