Labour big beasts join Matt Forde's Political Party

Neil Kinnock and Angela Rayner in West End shows

Matt Forde has added two Labour big beasts to his Political Party fortnightly residency at London’s Duchess Theatre.

Former leader Neil Kinnock joins the comedian for the live version of his podcast on January 10, and current deputy leader Angela Rayner will guest on January 24.

The next show is on December 20 and features Jacob Rees-Mogg,  Shadow Secretary of State for Mental Health, Rosena Allin-Khan and cross-party rock band MP4.

After 70 Political Party shows at Westminster’s The Other Palace, Forde moved to the West End’s Duchess Theatre for a fortnightly residency in September. The podcast boasts more than 6.6 million downloads since it began.
