Last night at the Leicester Square Theatre David, Hugh Dennis, Tom Allen, Angela Barnes and Ed Gamble recorded a new pilot produced by Mock The Week producer Dan Patterson. ‘Bring It On’ invited people to bring anything along to the recording with a story attached. Last night’s overall winner was a man who had attempted to clean yoghurt off his top on a date which eventually resulted in him burning a hole in it. There were various rounds with categories such as ‘Embarrassing dating stories’ or ‘regrettable purchases’ and with each of these the panel would offer up alternative embarrassing items of their own. It would be up to David to decide if the audience or the panel had won the round. The recording included an interval which made me wonder which TV channel this show might be for. At the end was an ‘Auction of Weirdness’ David and the gang would wander through the audience trying to decide on the weirdest item there. David eventually decided a tupperware full of air from the day a couple had married 30 years ago won this round.
I thought it was a very funny show and was extremely well received by everyone there. We can only hope that Bring It On will make it to TV in the future.
