Update: Click on the link for the latest details of how to request tickets to see Have I Got News for You being recorded

Off out tonight to see Have I Got News for You being recorded – again. It’s almost becoming a tradition for me to get a tickets to see one recording per season, and I really enjoy it. Unlike a couple of other shows I have been to see recorded – which were dire, I have never yet left a HIGNFY recording disappointed – even if you have to spend an hour plus in the queue outside prior to being let inside.

There is a warm up act to start off with, and they seem to alternate between a lady who is very good and appropriate for the audience or a bloke who spends a lot of time laughing at himself, being a bit crude and probably belongs in a late night club.

Then the recording begins, and unlike other shows they just record the whole thing without any breaks – and edit it together later on. The only corrections are made at the end when they re-record a few bits based on whether they think they will want just one “odd one out” round etc.

Tonight’s recording could be rather good though – as the mad as a hat Tom Baker will be the guest presenter! Should be outstanding.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
