A comedy show destined for a month-long run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe is getting a special preview in Radcliffe on Trent. Former local broadcaster, Jeremy Nicholas, will include stories of his career working in Nottinghamshire in his one-man performance on Friday 15thJune 2018.
Jeremy, who worked as a sports reporter for BBC Radio Nottingham and BBC East Midlands Today says
“My show’s called “After Dinner Stories from my Disastrous Broadcasting Career.” It’s stand-up comedy, but the stories are true!”
Amongst those stories will be his encounters with Brian Clough and other celebrities, as well as some of the more bizarre tasks he was given, like reporting on the face of Elvis appearing in a Stilton cheese.
Jeremy joined BBC Radio Nottingham in 1987, reporting on Nottingham Forest, before moving to London and national TV.
He’s bringing the preview to Nottinghamshire to help raise money for a local youth music festival, RadFest.
It promises to be an insightful and highly entertaining look at 27 years of trying not to get fired in broadcasting. The show is being held at Radcliffe on Trent British Legion. Doors open at 7.15pm for an 8.15pm show. Tickets, which are just £5, are available from Burleys in Radcliffe on Trent or e mail
