Description

Warped telly nostalgia from award-winning character comedian Tom Burgess. Mark the BBC's centenary in style with the befuddled children's TV pioneer. Peter re-enacts classic clips from the archive, sets the record crooked and reveals shocking truths about Blue Peter, which we can't put down in writing or we'll get sued. As seen on BBC Two and heard on Radio 4 Extra. 'A daft, well-observed show' (Sunday Times). 'Wonderfully silly' (Chortle.co.uk). 'Like a lost Fast Show character' (BeyondTheJoke.co.uk). **** (Stewart Lee, My Cultural Year 2019). Best Debut Show (Leicester Comedy Festival 2018).
