We’re famous

Look look look, we’re on TV.

Remember back in May Hannah, Lynnette and Marta went to the filming of an episode of QI? We blogged about it. Well, check out this shot from the show – they twisted the camera round to show a shot of the audience – and there we are slap bang in the middle – see if you can spot us (if you know what we look like)…

Proporta and QI

A couple of Friday’s ago a few of the Proporta team including a few outside friends travelled the distance from Brighton to London to go see the filming of QI at the London Studios in Waterloo. After an initial panic as one of the team nearly missed the train, we all got there just in the nick of time.

The line up was a funny old bunch, we had Alan Davies (of course), Rob Brydon, Jo Brand and Sean Lock and they were very very funny. Obviously not forgetting our favourite Stephen Fry, who actually gave Proporta a shout out from his iPhone, commenting on his case he had protecting it and shouting out to us to wish us a good time. It caused us great excitement as you can imagine.

Photos weren’t allowed in the studio but us naughty lot managed to sneak one in before the show started…

Dork Talk

Proporta is a big fan of Stephen Fry and so were overjoyed (and a little starstruck to be quite honest) when he received the goodies we sent him and kindly responded to Hannah with an email to say thank you. Seeing “Stephen Fry” pop up in your inbox doesn’t happen every day and was a lovely surprise.

He’s a particular fan of the Magnetic Cable Tidies and Gadget Bag, which he mentioned in his Dork Talk column in the Guardian a few weeks back. Since then we’ve kept in touch with his PA – Jo, and occasionally the man himself, and can now proudly call him a ‘friend of Proporta’.
