Entertainment (TV, Podcast, Books and Theatre)


Bristol based sketch and improv group ‘Up the Antics‘ is bringing you a new episode of their show: The Antics Home Show. ‘Mashing together the styles of The One Show and Blue Peter, with a small sprinkle of anarchy, the Antics Home Show will showcase a variety of informative vignettes that aim to educate and entertain… or something in-between. Hosted LIVE from Antics Studios (a living room) you will have a chance to get involved and interact with the show from the comfort of your own home, alongside pre-recorded skits filmed by all of the members of Up The Antics and special live segments.’ The show will be streamed via The Bristol Improv Theatre Twitch channel on Saturday the 4th of July at 8pm.
