Famous in the States!
Anyone who watches American talk shows (or ever goes near Youtube) may have seen the clip circulating from the recent episode of The Late Show, where Bedford-educated comedian John Oliver playfully goes through some of the upcoming events in ‘Bedford of Bedfordshire ‘ including two of our very own! Kids’ half term activity Badgers in a Box and our next Learning Lunchtime – Ghost, Witches and Medieval Mayhem were both mentioned (albeit, there was a bit of mickey-taking), along with other local activities. Jokes aside, we’re really proud that we were picked up for this segment – obviously to an American ear, things like a ‘corn exchange’ or anything ending in ‘shire’ are a bit ridiculous, but as a Bedfordshire resident it’s just amazing to see our local area being mentioned on such a massive show!
Now, if you’ll form an orderly queue we can sign autorgraphs….we’re off to do carpool karaoke next!Tags: bedfordshire, comedy, John Oliver, Late Show, Stephen Colbert, TV, USA
