Alexei Sayle

11 Feb 2016

As Margaret Thatcher moved into Downing Street in 1979, Soho’s Comedy Store opened its doors with Alexei Sayle as its master of ceremonies. Sayle’s painfully funny new memoir, Thatcher Stole My Trousers, chronicles a time when comedy and politics collided in new and electrifying ways. Join the godfather of alternative comedy as he discusses his career, from Marxist art-school student to star of The Comic Strip and The Young Ones.
