Show type: Edinburgh Fringe 2002
Starring Matt Blaize, Leicester Comedy festival 2002 winner and Russell Howard BBC New Comedy Finalist 2001.
A perfectly good show which was even enjoyed by a grouch like myself. Both comics were excellent despite poor attendence and dull audiences on some nights such as the one that the reviewer obviously attended. I saw the show every night for a week and thoroughly enjoyed it
A really poor show, they may have been good on other nights but they were woeful when I saw them.
I saw this show and loved it. Matt is a great comic, and Russell Howard blew me away. Either the reviewer came on a bad night, which happens, or they have an axe to grind.
A terrible and unimaginative show
This review is a hatchet job, these two are both very fine comedians. I think a small audience clearly didn't help and maybe you caught them on a bad night but I saw this show twice and it's unrecognizable to the one you describe.
The two of them were sharp and funny and the crowd loved them. In fact, so did I.
Wished Rusell Howard could have done the whole hour. He's just got loads of really funny stories and is a joy to watch.
Russell Howard is a comedy genius. He is quite possibly the future of comedy and you miss him at your peril. He's been supporting me on my regional tour dates, which is the fattest irony as he makes my comedy look like dad-dancing. And he'll be supporting Daniel Kitson in the Autumn, so you won't be able to afford to see him, so see him now and stop being so stupid I'm sure Matt is very good too. He is, after all, on the same bill as Russell.
