Smersh Live!! They said it couldn’t be done! They said it wouldn’t be done! They said they weren’t arsed! Yet they still came to the Everyman Cinema, Kings Cross to watch Michael Winner’s 1990 opus Bullseye! and enjoy a live podcast! Yes, it’s a film we covered before, but it sure made for a great screening, and everyone who attended will almost certainly never be the same again. Joining John were Paul Litchfield and David Reed, who can be found on Twitter as @MrPLitchfield and @MrDavidReed respectively

Hosted by writer, author and Bond enthusiast John Rain, SMERSH POD is the latest (and only) cult James Bond podcast, celebrating all things 007. Join us at Everyman Kings Cross for the first Live SMERSH POD event and get the chance to become part of the podcast.
We will be joined by John Rain and his guests, comedy actors Paul Litchfield and David Reed, who will be discussing and dissecting the Bond canon live on stage.
We will also be screening the 1990 comedy-crime-classic BULLSEYE! Starring Michael Caine (bringing his best American accent since Cider House Rules) and Roger Moore (doing some excellent accents of his own) as two con-artists who look staggeringly like a pair of renowned scientists – there will be hijinks, kilts and jokes that never get anywhere near the middle of the dart board.
It’s side special time again, and it’s one that nearly no-one’s been waiting for: 1997’s Spiceworld The Movie!

Joining John to endure 93 minutes of Girl Power and film-making ineptitude is writer and compulsive swearer Marc Haynes, who can be found on Twitter as @marchaynes.
Side Special time again, and it’s one of the most requested!

Joining John for a cup of poisoned coffee is Mark Evans, writer, performer, Twitter abstainer and all round ffine ffellow.
It’s side special time again, and this week we will be knocking back ALL the booze, un-pinning some grenades and loading up our guns as we take flight with The Wild Geese.
