John Finnemore, a radio comedian known for writing the popular radio sitcom Cabin Pressure, has currently been working on the third series of his popular sketch show ‘John Finnemore’s Souvenir Programme’. After many months working on the new series, John Finnemore took to his fans to tell him which of his new-penned sketches he should keep and which ones should be dropped. To do this John Finnemore, along with the rest of the cast of Souvenir Programme, presented a series of 4 comedy afternoons in the Priory Tavern, a small pub in Kilburn. There a large crowed of fans of the show amassed themselves to listen to the cast perform the first drafts of many brilliant sketches that may make the show. Having attended two of these four evenings, I heard some great new material. I’m probably not allowed to say too much over the Internet but I will just say that my favourite sketches included a storm at sea, a stamp collector and Ian McKellen. Apart from hearing new stuff, another bonus of the evenings was that I got the meet some of the great cast and crew. My list of cast autographs was made complete when I met Lawry Lewin and Simon Kane. I also had the pleasure of meeting producer Ed Morrish and composer Susannah Pearse. The third series of John Finnemore’s Souvenir Programme is being recorded next month.
