Matt Forde – The Political Party (Avalon Productions)

By | Published on Friday 9 August 2013

Politics is a business that attracts charmers, social recluses and nutters alike. In Political Party, Matt Forde celebrates the most colourful characters in modern British politics. Having worked in politics for a long time, he has a long list of anecdotes about his interactions with these politicians, including Dennis Skinner and Nigel Farage. One could accuse Forde of being too involved with the political machine: his politics are as safe and fuzzy as his satirical targets. But with fun for those with no interest in politics, and hilarity for those who have, there’s something for everyone in ‘The Political Party’ – and not just the narcissists in the House of Commons. A show that really hits the Marx.

Pleasance Dome, 25 Aug (not 16), 16.00.
