Join comedian, presenter and writer Sue Perkins at London Zoo, as she records Nature Table - a pilot for a new Radio 4 comedy celebrating the natural world and all its funny eccentricities.

Taking the format of a 'show and tell', Sue is joined by celebrity guests from the worlds of comedy and natural history. Each guest brings an item linked to the wild world to share with the audience, be it an amazing fact or funny personal anecdote. Each item is a springboard for an enlightening and funny discussion, alongside fun games and challenges revealing more astonishing facts. We'll also hear from some of the London Zoo audience, as they bring us their own natural history 'show and tells' for Sue and the guests to discuss.

The show has a simple clear brief: to positively celebrate and promote the importance of all our planet's wonderfully wild flora and fauna... and have a giggle.

Nature Table is the brainchild of award-winning comedy producer Simon Nicholls (Bridget Christie's Utopia, Ed Reardon's Week, Genius with Dave Gorman and Miles Jupp's recent sitcom pilot Party's Over).
