Gribbin the headlines

Comic hosts satirical show

Musical comic Steve Gribbin has landed a Radio 2 pilot.

Revolver is described as "a satirical topical show with a heavy emphasis on music".

The sketch-based show will also feature guests incuding stand-up Sean Meo, Squeeze star Glen Tilbrook, and Comedy Store Player Richard Vranch.

It is written by Gribbin and a team of writers from other radio shows, including Sony award-winner Colin Birch, and the cast includes My Hero's Geraldine McNulty.

The pilot is being recorded in central London's Drill Hall this Friday.

This is the show that celebrated the launch of Nick Helm's album in 2016, and has previously been unseen by anyone who was not in the O2 Forum Kentish Town that night.

With typical hyperbole, the show is described thusly: 'Under-rehearsed, under-prepared and under pressure, Nick and his band somehow managed to pull together the greatest show in the last 27 years of living memory. That show went down as a thing of legend, often spoken about by weary travellers around campfires, but thought to have been lost to the sands of time forever.'
