The SHAFTAs

Join Jonathan Woss and Davina McCool at the prestigious SHAFTA awards ceremony 2010, as the Who's Who of D list celebrities struggle with their pride, nerves and valium. Find out who wins the nice n' shiny trophies symbolising public acceptance and outstanding achievement. Who is worthy of a SHAFTA?

With nomination categories including 'Most hirsute talk show host', 'Best celebrity death' and 'Who my mum fancies off the telly, no not him, the other one.'

Review comments from previous shows include "snappy direction", "masterful sound-score", "a cultural collage with charming observation" and "local people laughing at their local lives".

The show is 1 hour 20 minutes, plus a 15 minute interval.

The show had a successful run in London's West End (August 18th to 21st), and then a single performance in Reading on Friday 8th October 2010, which raised 300 for Hospital Radio Reading.
