My Greenbelt Five: Helen Morant
Here are the selections of Greenbelt comedy producer Helen Morant:
A beautiful folky band from Derbyshire who have – over the last couple of years – held the positions of: my favourite live band, my favourite album 2011 (Into the Murky Water), funniest Christmas song (Christmas Mistake) and best song that made me cry because of a boy (You Could Keep Me Talking). I am delighted The Leisure Society will be at Greenbelt.
2. Mike Wozniak

3. Last Orders
Last Orders is back again, hooray. I love the way the show comes together to be different and interesting and funny and new every night. There are some great guests on Last Orders this year and there are some great surprises too.
