Just a Minute
Sunday 2 April 2017
Entertainer Nicholas Parsons brings some guests, including actress and comedian Maureen Lipman, multi-award-winning lyricist Sir Tim Rice, musical performer and screenwriter Kit Hesketh-Harvey and writer and journalist Paul Blezard for a special festival version of the long-running BBC Radio 4 show Just a Minute.
Panel members are challenged to speak for one minute without repetition or deviation on any subject that comes up. Be prepared for the sort of entertainment that has kept the BBC show going for more than 900 episodes over the last 60 years.
Parsons first came to the fore in the late 50s in a comedy partnership with Arthur Haynes. Alongside Just a Minute, he is well known for presenting Sale of the Century and for his chat show at the Edinburgh Fringe, which has run for 13 years. He has presented Just a Minute for the last 50 years without a break. His West End roles include Stephen Sondheim’s Into the Woods and The Rocky Horror Show.
