Trust The Bucket
Comedy game show hosted by Tony Hawks
Trust The Bucket (The Cheapest Show On Television) is a comedy game show hosted by Tony Hawks, a writer, stand-up and panel show regular, particularly on Radio 4's I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue. He has written several best-selling books, including Around Ireland With A Fridge and Playing The Moldovans at Tennis.
Trust The Bucket is the show where everyone in plays a part and anyone could win one of a quite staggering array of prizes.
All you need to do as an audience member is come with a prize that's small enough to fit into a carrier bag - the sort of thing you might find in a car boot sale or bric-a-brac stall. You also need to come armed with your best general knowledge question. Your prize could be chosen as one of the staggering array of prizes just mentioned, and your general knowledge question could eventually decide who wins. Or it could even be you stepping up at the end of the show to carry off one of the staggering array of prizes* - anything can happen when we Trust The Bucket.
* You could of course end up winning your own prize, but that's the Bucket for you.
