An Evening with Alexei Sayle - Thatcher Stole My Trousers

Liverpool’s very own Marx brother (Karl, not Harpo) joins WoW to tell tales from the second instalment of his brilliant memoir Thatcher Stole my Trousers, where we find him taking the London comedy world by storm. Fascinating, funny, angry and entertaining, it’s a story of class and comedy, politics and love, fast cars and why it's difficult to foul a dwarf in a game of football.
 
When the Comedy Store opened in London, Alexei Sayle responded to an advert in Private Eye for would-be comedians. He soon became its first master of ceremonies. Alexei Sayle has written two short story collections and five novels, including the fascinating and hugely entertaining Stalin Ate My Homework (2010), which focused on Alexei’s early life. Host Brian Reade is an award-winning journalist and writer, who has two columns in the Daily Mirror. He was named Columnist of The Year 2000 at The British Press Gazette Awards, and in 2003 was named Sports Columnist of The Year in the Sports Journalism Awards. Brian has written about his life long support of Liverpool FC in 44 Years With The Same Bird: A Liverpudlian Love Affair, and the almost collapse of the club in the hands of american Owners Hicks and Gillette in An Epic Swindle - 44 Months With a pair of Cowboys
