Tickets To The Nether Regions

Watch Rob Grant's new show get recorded!

8 February, 2019

If you're partial to seeing a bit of live comedy recorded - and why wouldn't you be? - then you might want to snaffle yourself the opportunity to go along to the Stratford Circus Arts Centre in East London on Friday 22nd February; as it's there you can see a new Radio 4 show titled The Nether Regions. And why would that be of particular interest to us? Well, it just so happens to be the new pilot from Red Dwarf co-creator Rob Grant, that's why.

Tickets To The Nether Regions

The show is co-written by Rob and his Quanderhorn Xperimentations co-conspirator Andrew Marshall, while Red Dwarf III alumnus Gordon Kennedy is also involved in the production. Rather than try and describe it any further here, we'll let it do so itself:

Welcome to... The Nether Regions: a place where the laws of physics and even time itself take a day off, put their feet up and watch daytime television in their underpants.

This is our world, today, though not quite the today we know. And not entirely the world we live in. But nearly.

Your guides through this madness, fresh from their success creating The Quanderhorn Xperimentations: Rob Grant (Red Dwarf) and Andrew Marshall (2point4children), together with young performers, new to radio but familiar to the Job Centre.

Come with us to a land of Bastards, Boobs and Bottoms, where nobody wears any underwear, even though it's permanently winter. No, not Newcastle: it's Throne of Forks.

Join old men talking Sh*t - the call-in hosts of Impotent Rage FM - London's premier station for exasperated seniors.

Meet the permanently angry chef, who vents his foul-mouthed invective on diners with the temerity to question his serving Chicken on an Electric Fence with a side of Gasping Fish.

Recoil in disgust as you witness the appalling conditions in backstreet emoji farms.

Let Rob and Andrew and their callow young carers take you on a whistle stop tour of uncannity and strangeositude.

Performed before a live studio audience and a dead wasp.

You can get hold of tickets completely free via the BBC Shows website - but move quickly, as radio tickets have a habit of disappearing extremely quickly, especially when they're free.

We'll bring you further news on the broadcast of The Nether Regions as and when we have it!
