The second to last post on My London Bucket List Saga! How sad!
This chapter will only be a short one as well, I just has to share the experience! Nearing the end of our placements Brad managed to win two tickets to take us to see Mock The Week!
For those who don’t know what Mock The Week is, it’s a panel show on TV where there are 6 comedian panelists and Dara O’Briain is the panel host. The panelists will spend the majority of the show looking at different segments of the news that week and make jokes about the apparent news. It’s just a really fun and funny experience to be in the audience and watch the show be filmed.
My favorite segment of the show is called “Scenes we’d like to see”. Where the panelists stand opposite each other 3 on each side and a topic is displayed on the board behind. Things like “Things you won’t hear on the evening news” or “what actually happened in these kids TV shows”.
They are endlessly funny. Because we also won tickets to ‘8 out of 10 cats’ but didn’t get there in time due to traffic it meant the next tickets we were offered we got priority! So we were sat right at the front for Mock the Week, it was awesome and we met a lovely couple sat with us too.
Before we went to see Mock The Week we headed through Westfield’s at Shepard’s Bush. Personally I thought the one in Stratford was impressive. UNTIL I came to that Westfield’s.
It was MORE than impressive and so much bigger and nicer than the one in Stratford. Although we couldn’t do any shopping as we were skint, we did have a good look around! The Tesla shop was my favorite, ONE DAY I SHALL OWN A TESLA.
We stopped for some dinner in Tortilla, for some Mexican food! Never eaten in a Tortilla before so I will definitely recommend it for future quick meals, I had Quesadillas and they were SO GOOD.
Once we had chowed down we headed out of Westfield’s to towards the BBC Film Studios! It’s a really awesome area, the atmosphere is really nice and the organisation of the event was really good. We were in and seated within a couple of minutes which was really great.
The panel is made up of 6 comedians! So for this episode of the show we had Desiree Burch, Hugh Dennis who is a team captain and my all time favourite. Milton Jones, Ed Burns, Angela Barnes and Glenn Moore!
It was a really awesome experience I would definitely suggest trying to get tickets for these events if you rate panel shows! You can get the tickets through SRO Audiences online! Its reliable and means you get to see the panel shows that you want to see, you just apply for tickets and see if you get lucky!
