The Roy Huddlines

A News Huddlines reunion celebrating the life and comedy of Roy Hudd OBE.

The Roy Huddlines was staged on Sunday 14th May 2023 at the Sondheim Theatre in London's West End. The cast, writers and producers of BBC Radio's longest-running audience comedy programme, The News Huddlines, gathered to celebrate the life, love and laughter of Roy Hudd OBE.

Roy had a profound effect on all who worked with him - he was a unique combination of comedy genius, wise mentor and cheeky uncle. The cast reunited here for one joyous hurrah in his honour are Huddlines originals Chris Emmett, Alison Steadman, Nichola McAuliffe and announcer Richard Clegg, plus Kate Harbour and the brilliant Jon Culshaw who took Roy's centre microphone with the blessing of Roy's widow, Debbie Hudd.

Also assembled for this gala event were the writers who cut their comedy teeth working on The News Huddlines and went on to create some of the finest British comedy from the 1980s to the present day. Not The Nine O'Clock News, Spitting Image, Drop The Dead Donkey and One Foot In The Grave were all created by Huddlines alumni, and the legacy continues.
