On Sunday December 11th, we played host to the first ever live show for the Comedians Playing Fantasy Premier League (CPFPL) podcast, hosted by Jon Richardson (8 out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, Meet The Richardsons) and Matt Forde (Spitting Image, Have I Got News For You).
You might have already guessed from our recent sponsorship of the podcast, that we’re big fans of CPFPL. Turns out, we’re not the only ones! Tickets sold out in less than five days.
The format of the podcast lent itself to an intimate and unique show that we’re not going to forget any time soon. The show included many of the regular features listeners to the podcast have come to enjoy on a weekly basis and was recorded live for release later this week. It also served as an opportunity for the hosts to perform a forfeit amnesty, while Vinny Van der Veet, the podcast’s mascot also made a surprise appearance.
We're not sure hosting a live podcast recording with two of the country’s most highly respected comedians is something many people would expect from a brewery, but we’re delighted we were able to make it happen and would like to thank Jon, Matt and Danny (the podcasts’ producer) once again for trusting Rooster’s to play host to the first CPFPL live show.
If you're not already aware of our monthly comedy night (Really Funny Comedy) hosted by Micky P Kerr on the last Thursday of the month, you’re missing out! Audiences are have been treated to some of the UK’s finest comedians since we launched the monthly shows in March this year, including Brennan Reece, Troy Hawke and Eshaan Akbar. Maisie Adam* and Josh Pugh will be headlining the December and January shows respectively too!
