Knock2bag Presents Luke McQueen: The Person Behind The Celebrity
Luke McQueen + Top Secret Guest
Entry Requirements: 18+
Luke McQueen presents a new farcical chat show; “The Person Behind The Celebrity”, where he ignores the celebrity guest and instead speaks to someone less known from their life, sat directly behind them.
You might see him speaking to Ferne Brittons Mother or John Fashanus Plumber. This is a chance to tell their story without interruption; whether it’s an ex boss on why they had to fire them, a cousin whose job brings shame to the family, or even a bloke on the bus who once gave up their seat for the pre fame celeb but didn’t feel he was thanked enough. Whomever the person behind, the celeb guest MUST remain silent throughout the interview, unable to defend themselves to any unsavoury stories.
There will also be plenty of crap games, special guest performaces and pre recorded videos to create an entertaining atmosphere for people to clap along too. It's basically the Johnathan Ross show if Johnathan Ross wasnt presenting it and his guests weren't allowed to talk.
