Description

As a child, George Rigden (Leicester Mercury Comedian of the year nominee 2017) was friends with Uri Geller for two years. This is the bizarre but true story of that friendship. In the wake of Operation Yewtree and the #MeToo movement, this is a tale that is as relevant as it is profitable (TBC). A true story about friendship, autographs and cutlery. 'Deliciously dark' (BeyondTheJoke.co.uk). 'A fine, wretched persona' (Chortle.co.uk). As heard on BBC Radio 2 and BBC Radio 4. As seen on BBC One, BBC Two and BBC Four.
