Marcus Brigstocke persuades his reluctant guests to try new experiences: things that they've perhaps always meant to try but haven't had the time, the courage or possibly the inclination.
Enjoy hearing some famous names embrace new challenges, such as Phill Jupitus drinking absinthe, Mark Steel constructing flat-pack furniture, Esther Rantzen finally joining Facebook, Kelly Holmes trying her first deep-fried Mars bar, Giles Coren having a go at being vegan, and Frank Skinner getting a spray tan.
The curious guests include: Phill Jupitus, Paul Daniels, Mark Steel, Esther Rantzen, Suggs, Sandi Toksvig, Sanjeev Bhaskar, Jon Culshaw, Jenni Eclair, Ardal O’Hanlon, Kate Adie, Ian Hislop, Frank Skinner, Alan Davies, Kathy Burke, Sarah Millican, Meera Syal, Dave Gorman, Benjamin Zephaniah, Rebecca Front, Reece Shearsmith and Kelly Holmes.
Whether the experiences are banal or profound, the show is all about getting out of our comfort zones and embracing the new.

I only caught the last two series when this was broadcast and I looked forward to each episode so it’s terrific to have them all in one audiobook.
Marcus Brigstocke does a fantastic job as the host and you’ll be very surprised at what he discovers that some of his guests have never experienced, such as Jon Culshaw had never eaten salad(!)

I wish I'd listened to it years ago get fun bridgestock needs another series to be made
Marcus has a mild mannered,perceptive, quick and intelligent wit and the series has a good premise. Unfortunately, as the series progressed it became clear that a lot was become visually based and less suitable for radio...his guests gradually became less mainstream and interesting too but all in all..?much entertainment to be had.
