Enjoy watching BBC Question Time? Find yourself shouting at the TV now and again? Use the #BBCQT Twitter hashtag to make snarky comments? If the answer to at least one of those questions is yes you might like to come to the BBC Question Time Watch-along. It's a new, regular night organised by Nat Guest (or @unfortunatalie on Twitter) in which you can watch the show in a room full of people, tweet at each other, play the drinking game, and watch some fantastic comedy and political discussion beforehand.
As Nat says on the website:
Twitter has a clever knack of making live events, and shared events, much more fun; even if they're things that, perhaps, on your own, you would find mind-numbingly dull. I don't mean that Question Time is mind-numbingly dull; obviously I'm talking about X Factor here. I, in fact, watched all of last year's series of X Factor - simply because the shared jokes and japes and piss-taking on Twitter made it such a joyous experience to be a part of. And it's the same with Question Time; even the dry bits and the knee'jerkingly horrifying bits are a lot more fun with a feed full of people doing SATIRE and making JOKES and getting ANGRY AT THE GOVERNMENT. Normally, all on their own, in front of their computerSLASHtelly, yelling at the screen and drowning their political anxieties with whatever liquor comes to hand.
I was asked to create a poster for the event on March 22 - which has a stellar line-up including Josie Long, Sara Pascoe, and MJ Hibbett. Here it is:
Tickets are selling fast so get your tickets now if you fancy going! I'll see you there.
