Who's to blame for Tim McGarry?

Or more precisely, who's responsible for the surprisingly athletic appearance of McGarry, host of the BBC's The Blame Game, in this pose take to publicise the Belfast live screening of the Secret Policeman's Ball ('when?', 'where?' you helpfully cry! 'Saturday 7pm at the Errigle Inn' is my razor-sharp riposte).

Either Guinness really is good for you, or McGarry has had a helping hand from some techie who knows their way around Photoshop. The writer, actor, stand-up and lawyer isn't saying much except:

"Please come to the Amnesty gig, top comedy from London and live comedy from me and if you’re very lucky, I’ll keep my clothes on.
"Last week we freed Burmese dissident U Win Tin because of a couple of Amnesty gigs in the Whitla Hall. If Saturday night goes well I reckon Guantanamo Bay will be closed by Monday."

McGarry, a long-time Amnesty supporter, will be doing a live comedy turn to add to all the laughs coming live by satellite from the Royal Albert Hall and onto a big screen upstairs at the Errigle on Belfast's Ormeau Road. The comedy marathon will be followed by a DJ set from our good friends at Hydroponic Music.

More details at the Belfast Bellylaugh. Tickets in advance from the Errigle Inn or Belfast Welcome Centre or pay at door.
