Those of you following us on Twitter may have noticed that I was round Arthur Smith's Balham gaff yesterday. It wasn't just me there, though. So were comedians Stephen K Amos (pictured below), Pippa Evans, Matt Holness and poet Benjamin Zephaniah - not to mention a radio crew, a video crew and an audience.

We were all in attendance for the recording of an episode of Arthur Smith's Balham Bash, a new series coming soon to Radio 4, in which Arthur invites an audience into his real house to watch a performance in (nearly) every room.

Stephen K Amos
There was Benjamin in the lounge, Matt in the bedroom, Pippa in the kitchen and, at one point, Stephen in the bathroom. In the bath. We were herded around by our gruffly hospitable host who performed his material wherever he chose. The atmosphere was friendly and anarchic - almost like a house party, only with proper entertainment. And many more wires.

Watch this space for news on this unique show, and visit the gallery to see more pictures from the recording.
