Harry and Paul Present: The Gentleman’s Club

Radio review by Steve Bennett

14/03/2017 … The rarefied world of the London gentlemen’s club is one Harry Enfield and Paul Whitehouse have visited before, via their two old duffers with an unhealthy obsession with whether everyone in the public eye was a ‘queer’ or not.

Jonny And The Baptists: Eat The Poor

Gig review by Steve Bennett at the Orange Tree Theatre, Richmond

13/03/2017 … It sounds like the dreadfully diligent project of a 1980s fringe political theatre group: an issues-based play about homelessness, inequality and the undeserving rich.

Darren Connell: No Filter

Gig review by Jay Richardson at the Glasgow Comedy Festival

11/03/2017 … As the breakout star of BBC Scotland's cop mockumentary Scot Squad,  Darren Connell has found minor celebrity a decidedly mixed blessing.
