Free tickets to pilot of new panel show ‘Mind The Gap’

‘Mind The Gap’ is a new panel show and to host the pilot, Mel Giedroyc will take the floor. It will feature two teams of gusts and will “pit the generations against each other to find out for certain whether life begins or ends at 40”. Each of the teams will be led by one of the stand-up comedians, Chris Ramsey or Jenny Eclair. Judith Holder who produced earlier Grumpy Old Women Live Together, is the comedy producer who devised the show.
Avalon, the production company, will trial the show hosted by Mel Giedroyc next month. The producers explained that the show will have Chris Ramsey lead a team of young whipper-snappers and Jenny Eclair, a team of old farts. The teams will face challenges that are physical, mental and of general knowledge, to determine who’s best equipped to face the challenges of modern life, for certain. The pilot panel show will run on 19th July Monday, at the pub- George IV, on Chiswick High Road, Chiswick, London. To get free tickets, go to the sire- and book instantly online.
