Afternoon all and congratulations to every single one of you.
This is a small post to introduce some BIG NEWS that we are pretty excited about, and one or two of you may be bit excited about it too.
Our compere for Playful 2012 will be the most excellent, mirthful and giddy JOSIE LONG.
You may recognise Josie from off of the telly in such things as Charlie Brooker’s You Have Been Watching, and Never Mind The Buzzcocks, or heard her on the wireless on Radio 1, Resonance FM or Absolute Radio. Maybe you’ve even seen her on stage doing what’s she’s best at: telling jokes and making lols appear.
The compere’s job is one of the most under-rated and hard to do. A mixture of good humour, getting names correct and gently hauling people off stage when they’re yammering on about something or other 5 minutes too long — and we think we’ve come up trumps with such an excellent host.
Give Josie a warm welcome, and see you again soon.
