Write-up by guest MC Barbara Fernandez Last night was a blast at The Albany – Great Portland Street! It felt like a family party, only way funnier and with everyone having fun The night began with George Williams whose liver drives a hard bargain to keep him out of trouble. Then Monica Y Hsueh cautioned us to be careful when signing on the dotted line: you may be getting a marriage instead of a parcel! Louis Brady praised the government for their support of Ukraine – their votes in Eurovision really made a difference. Aidan Morris says guess what? Apparently
