On March 9th we have the amazing (@helen_keen) Helen Keen as a guest historian on The Z list Dead List. #zlistdeadlist
Now, a lot of you know Helen from her amazing knowledge and hilarious investigations into Rocket Science, NASA and Nazi war criminals. Most of you will know her from her work with Brian Cox, Robin Ince, Peter Serafinowicz etc and radio shows like Jon Ronson On and of course, her very own series… but it might interest you to know that despite her amazing achievements and awesome talents, SHE CANNOT MAKE PORRIDGE PROPERLY (see video). (There are loads of videos of helen not making an idiot out of herself online. I chose this one.)
The next Z List Dead list Live Show is on March 9th and one of the guest historians is the fab Nathan Penlington. Fitting beautifully in the theme of the Z list, he is a chapwho you might not have heard of, but really should have. (Alas, we’ll probably have to wait awhile before he dies and we can champion him officially.)
Nathan is currently Touring his (****The Times) show Choose Your Own Documentary. A comedy show where you are given a remote and told to make choices about where the documentary will lead. My tip - pick the handwriting expert.
The show won a Fringe First Award and has been getting the sort of critical acclaim that makes you wonder how soon it will be until Nathan is bloody everywhere and no longer eligible for his posthumous place among the Z Listers.
