A Matter of Life and Death Cover Image

About the Author: Alistair McGowan

Alistair McGowan is probably best known to British audiences for The Big Impression which was, for four years, one of BBC1’s top-rating comedy programmes – winning numerous awards, including a BAFTA - and for his recent much-admired ITV1 sports-comedy 'You Cannot Be Serious' ('An excellent one-man show!' Clive James, Daily Telegrpah).


After graduating from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in 1989, Alistair began working as a stand-up comic and was soon a regular at London’s Comedy Store and appeared at The Edinburgh Festival and on the 1996 Royal Variety Show. 2009 saw him return to stand-up and embark on his first solo National tour – ‘The One and Many…’ and his ‘comeback’ was complete when he appeared on Live At the Appollo. In 2011, he also appeared on Jason Manford's Comedy Rocks, twice on A Question of Sport and on The Comedy Annual on ITV1. In 2012, he has been a guest on Room 101.



From 1992-1996, he provided the voices for many of the characters on Spitting Image.

Ronni Ancona is fed up with football: the way it dominates TV, takes over men's brains and scuppers any chance of romance. And so, for the sake of women everywhere, Ronni concocts an experiment to see if a man can be made to give up the very thing he claims he cannot live without. But who would agree to be Ronni's guinea-pig? Surely not her ex-boyfriend, Alistair McGowan, who has devoted much of his life to the game, from a childhood obsession with kicking a ball about to an adult addiction to Ceefax football pages?

Over the course of a year, we follow TV's best-known male/female double act in a hilarious battle of the sexes. Ronni institutes replacement techniques - walks, culture and endless rounds of toast and Marmite - but what happens when a man gives up the thing he loves most? And after being 'clean' for the whole summer, will the lure of a new season break his resolve?
