Beat The Frog World Series 2013 Final

Gig review by Steve Bennett at the Frog & Bucket, Manchester

29/10/2013 … It's something of a topsy-turvy way of doing things; but last night's Beat The Frog 'world series' new act final began with a set from 2012 winner, Jay Hampson.

Gig review by Jay Richardson at the Galway Comedy Festival

29/10/2013 … A characteristic of comedy festivals like Galway is that the best line-ups of comics don't always produce the best shows.

Barry Humphries: Eat Pray Laugh - The Farewell Tour | Gig review by Steve Bennett at Milton Keynes Theatre

Barry Humphries: Eat Pray Laugh - The Farewell Tour

Gig review by Steve Bennett at Milton Keynes Theatre

25/10/2013 … What a way to bow out! After 58 incredible years, Barry Humphries retires Dame Edna – and indeed all his creations - with a glorious mix of pathos, showmanship and biting humour that proves a theatrical triumph.

Stars Of Father Ted

Gig review by Jay Richardson at the Galway Comedy Festival

25/10/2013 … 'ARSE!', 'FECK!', 'GIRLS!' Such is the affection in which Father Ted is still held, more than 15 years after the dysfunctional priest sitcom ended, that 'Tedfests' continue to be held in both Ireland and the UK.

Cariad and Paul: A Two-Player Adventure

Gig review by Steve Bennett at the Pleasance, Islington

19/10/2013 … Apparently when Cariad Lloyd and Paul Foxcroft performed this show at Edinburgh, some reviewers weren’t convinced it was improvised at all.

Brighton Comedy Festival: Abandoman: Moonrock Boombox

Gig review by Steve Bennett

18/10/2013 … Abandoman’s improvised rap shtick has become pretty well known on the comedy circuit, but the task of sustaining what’s a mighty impressive talent into a varied and substantial hour has not always been easy.

Brighton Comedy Festival: Josh Widdicombe: Incidentally... | Gig review by Steve Bennett

Brighton Comedy Festival: Josh Widdicombe: Incidentally...

Gig review by Steve Bennett

18/10/2013 … It must be exhausting being Josh Widdicombe, being exasperated to the point of incredulity at every little thing in his life.
