My Seven Wonders with Clive Anderson

73. Bilal Zafar - LIVE!

Ep. 73

Today’s guest is famous for two things: comedy and managing a fictional football team on a video game on the internet. It’s Bilal Zafar, of course!


Bilal joins Clive on stage to tell him all about that and choose his seven wonders of the world. Unfortunately, he seems to have picked all the worst things in the world as wonders. We’ll let you decide if cats are included in that category…


This episode was recorded live at the Edinburgh Fringe, August 2023.
