SASKIA PRESTON: ABSENT (FREE!)
May 9 @ 9:30pm – May 23 @ 10:30pm

• Thu 9, Thu 16 & Thu 23 May @ 9:30pm •
(1 hour)

A work in progress show from professional clothes-wearer Saskia Preston.

In this blurb, Saskia will hint that she’s a really cool and self-aware model by saying ”professional clothes-wearer” but really the only thing that’s definitely true is that she’s a French missionary married to Meghan Merkle. This can’t be discussed in the show for national security reasons but there will be jokes about Dads, Mums, friends, girlfriends, dogs and mice instead. Mostly one liners. And occasionally jokes that are longer than 30 seconds.

As heard on BBC Radio 4 Extra
Writer for The News Quiz and The Now Show
