Dog Reporter catches up with Max Olesker, formerly of Portsmouth, to talk about the comedy duo’s new show
Wednesday nights are usually a case of catching up on the new drama I want to see on the telly. But this week I was asked to go along and watch the cast of the award-winning Portsmouth Players society rehearse for next week’s show, “Priscilla Queen of the Desert”. The Players are a tight-knit group of dedicated performers and crew who come together and bring professional shows to life, all whilst using local talent. The Portsmouth Players have actually been performing since 1927, can you believe that?!
Maybe you have seen the flyer around town of the dynamic duo that is Max and Ivan. Their BBC Radio 4 sitcom, The Casebook of Max & Ivan, has attracted guest stars including Matt Lucas, June Whitfield, Jessica Hynes, Reece Shearsmith and Mark Heap. I caught up with Max this week and he has put together a guest blog post all about his show hitting the Wedgewood Rooms next week! It does look rather funny and for a good cause so hope to see you all there!
