Armando Iannucci's Charm Offensive is a topical, events-driven radio comedy hosted by comedy guru Iannucci that is recorded in front of a live audience. With the sketchability of The Now Show, combined with the going-off-on-a-mad-streak of a maverick News Quiz round, Iannucci and his comedian guests pull apart the week's news in an effortlessly original manner.
Part 1 features Clive Anderson, Natalie Hayes, and Will Smith.
Armando Iannucci is one of the leading writer/performer/producers of the decade, having created and produced On The Hour, The Day Today, Knowing Me, Knowing You...with Alan Partridge, The Thick Of It, and The Friday Night Armistice at least. Other notable credits include Gash (for Channel 4), The News Quiz (as a regular), and The 99p Challenge. He's also a professor at Oxford or something. Download and start listening now!
