Popular true crime comedy podcast, and Pod Bible favourite, Drunk Women Solving Crime have announced a raft of live recordings for 2021 as part of a new London residency at the Museum of Comedy in Bloomsbury. The show, which features celebrity guests attempting to “solve” historical crime cases in a quiz-style format over drinks, will record episodes monthly at the venue, which boasts one of the most comprehensive collections of comedy memorabilia.
“After more than a year of remote recordings, we couldn’t be more excited to get back on stage with a live audience!” said Hannah George, who is one of the podcast’s three creator hosts along with Catie Wilkins and Taylor Glenn.
“At nearly 150 episodes and millions of downloads, we’ve managed to keep going without a break during lockdown. But there’s no substitute for the energy of a live show,” said Wilkins. “From Edinburgh to Manchester and London, and even the Isle of Wight, they’ve become the heart of the podcast.”
“We have amazing audiences, the sort of people whose ‘heckles’ are historical facts about the case we’re doing. From the darkness we’ll hear someone shout “statute of limitations!’” added Glenn. “We usually thank them before we politely tell them to be quiet.”
With an impressive roster of past guests including Ricki Lake, London Hughes, Fortune Feimster, Shappi Khorsandi and Katherine Ryan, as well as their annual Men’s Month episodes featuring James Acaster, Richard Osman, and Romesh Ranganathan, Drunk Women Solving Crime look forward to welcoming the best of the UK’s comedy circuit to the double-header shows, the first of which will be Tuesday July 20th
“There’s an incredible wealth of talent in comedy right now,” said George. “And with the rest of the performance world opening back up for socially-distanced shows, you can expect some exciting names on the bill.”
Amanda Redman, a veteran producer of radio who now oversees a slate of successful podcasts including Drunk Women Solving Crime, added “We have sold out shows from the Edinburgh Fringe to Leicester Square Theatre, and we’re looking forward to recording at the more intimate Museum of Comedy, where the panel will get tipsy on a Tuesday and tackle all things crime-related.”
Show Dates/Tickets: 20th July, 31st August, 28th September, 26th October, and 23rd November at 7PM and 8:30PM.
