Award winning Pantomime producer Paul Hendy is my guest for this episode.
He tells me about his first role in pantomime, which was playing King Rat at the age of 18, how he helped Ant & Dec to stage one of TV's biggest wind ups during a pantomime and I can promise you'll never watch a blockbuster Hollywood film in the same way again.
I would also like to thank Paul for his valuable time and support with the project.
