Clowns, Comedy & Commentary

Mark Thomas: Check-Up (2018)

The last time that I had ventured to Dalston had been a trip to a sweat box, dropping club in the basement of a convenience store. It had been a fun night but not one that I have been tempted... Continue Reading →

Dara O’Briain: Voice of Reason (2018)

When someone mentions Dara O’Briain the first thing that probably comes to mind is “that game show host from Mock the Week and 8-bit”. Some people would probably stick him in the same box as regular TV personalities like Rob Brydon and... Continue Reading →

Reginald D Hunter: An American Facing the Beast and Niggas (2018)

On a day of great shows (Larry Dean & Pierre Novelli) we had chosen Andrew Maxwell as the closing act, the coup de grace, the finale. And once again this clown stuck a cherry on top of an almost perfect... Continue Reading →

Pierre Novellie: See Novellie, Hear Novellie, Speak Novellie (2018)

Following on from last years truly brilliant show Pierre Novellie had become one of the first names on the team sheet when it came to buying tickets for this years Fringe. Even though he has been performing for years I... Continue Reading →

Satanic Rites of Robin Ince (2018)

I must start this review with an odd thank you, due to this venue only having a tiny and (respectfully) quiet bar we were forced to find another nearby. We stumbled in to 'The Nightcap', a basement bar located almost... Continue Reading →
