15 Years of The Inbetweeners: In conversation with Joe Thomas

About this event

Circa 2007, Joe Thomas was a budding actor/writer headed for the Edinburgh Festival Fringe alongside university writing partner, Simon Bird.

While performing their two-man show The Meeting, the pair were spotted by Iain Morris and Damon Beesley, TV producers who were developing an as-then untitled E4 sitcom about four hapless sixth-formers, chronicling their various misadventures.

Later titled The Inbetweeners, the series went on to become Channel 4’s most-watched show ever, winning a Rose D’or for Best Situation Comedy and spawning two feature films; the first of which, set in the party town of Malia, broke records for having the most successful opening weekend for a comedy film in the UK.

In this stripped back, relaxed and exclusive event, Joe will be in conversation about his time on The Inbetweeners and taking questions from the audience.

Predominantly focusing on The Inbetweeners, but touching on Joe’s other work including White Gold, Taskmaster and The Great Celebrity Bake Off, this promises to be a revealing and exciting evening with Joe.

So come along, bring your friends (ooh, friends!), and enjoy this exclusive evening of hilarity and insight into the nation’s best loved teen sitcom from one of its key stars.

Meet and greet/selfies:
