Andy Hamilton's Hat of Doom
You may not have heard his name before (unless your butcher or plumber shares it) but you will almost certainly have seen the fruits of his comedy writing on TV. Outnumbered, Drop the Dead Donkey, Shelley and Not The Nine O’Clock News are a brief sample, while he’s also popped up on Have I Got News for You and QI. Expect anecdotes, observations and witty bonhomie rather than sweary stand-up comedy. Think we may have had quite enough of that this month, don’t you?
