Annual Lunch 29th April 2020

29 April 2020

Grosvenor House, Park Lane, London

Join us for an afternoon of good food, good wine, good company and some good laughs at the Chemical Industry’s biggest event of the Year!

This year’s speaker is Clive Anderson, a barrister by profession, Clive Anderson acquired a taste for comedy while studying at Cambridge, where he was president of Footlights. Following success as a scriptwriter on The Frankie Howerd Variety Show, Not The Nine O’Clock News and Alias Smith & Jones, he went on to launch himself as a stand-up comedian at The Comedy Store, before breaking into television. Clive’s tenure as the quick-witted host of Whose Line is it Anyway? led to his own comedy chatshow. His guests included Mikhail Gorbachev, Susan Sarandon and the Bee Gees – who famously walked off set mid-show.

Other successes include the travel series Our Man In…, the political gameshow If I Ruled the World, and the nostalgia-based comedy quiz Back in the Day. Clive has appeared on the BBC’s QI and the revamped Mastermind quiz show, and hosts Radio 4’s Loose Ends.
