Press clippings

Rufus Hound, one of those comedians who seem to have whizzed from obscure clubs into radio and TV fame without many raised laughs as the wind beneath their wings, hosts this new weekly roundup of news from the comedy front line. He talks to performers, reviews acts and trails programmes, comments on highlights of the week's events (e.g. yet more awards nights), chats to studio guests. It's not exactly the Today or World at One of mirth, but may appeal to any bold soul who's still contemplating shelling out a few quid on live laughter this weekend.
