Giles Wemmbley Hogg Goes Off... Article 50

Marcus Brigstocke stars as Budleigh Salterton’s biggest idiot come to help us over the cliff-edge in a show that, like Brexit, is being put together right up to the last minute.

He’s back! Marcus Brigstocke stars as Budleigh Salterton’s biggest idiot, come to help us over the cliff-edge in a show that - in a tribute to Brexit – will still be being put together right up to the last minute.

It's misery chez the Wemmbley Hogg household. Since Giles's mother - Mums - and his father - Peter Wemmbley Hogg, same spelling - voted on opposite sides of the Brexit coin, nobody is speaking to each other anymore and Giles isn't even allowed to use the word "chez”.

So, if - like Giles - you're confused, miserable and torn between the Remoaners and the Brexiteers, then this is the show for you as, in one glorious half-hour special, Giles decides that for the sake of his family - and probably Britain - he's going to ruddy well SORT IT OUT.
