Andy Zaltzman: Satirist for Hire

Andy Zaltzman brings his acclaimed show Satirist for Hire to Leeds Comedy Festival. Andy will address your queries, complaints, demands and general gripes to order in his uniquely interactive satirical stand-up show.

Are you exasperated by economics, piqued by politics, or wound up about the world? Then this is your chance to have the issues you care about satirised to order by one of Britain’s leading political comedians, who will deliver freshly-hewn, individually-tailored comedic responses to your big issues.

You are invited to email your satirico-query to, including the date of the show you’ll be attending, plus details of the issue/person/concept/thing you would like addressed. All issues considered (within reason), whether political, social or miscellaneous, and whether global, national, local or intensely personal.

Previous issues requested range from British democracy, via Syria, the lyrics of Carly Rae Jepsen, mental health provision in the age of austerity, the concept of hope, and Kevin Pietersen, all the way to criminal justice and Pokemon.

Zaltzman is half of the global smash hit topical podcast The Bugle, alongside John Oliver, and star of 5 Live’s 7 Day Sunday/Saturday, sundry stuff on Radio 4, and bafflingly/rightly infrequent TV appearances (delete according to taste), and has performed stand-up in all four of the world’s leading hemispheres.

This show will be performed in 3D.

Running time: 90 mins. approx
