Clowns, Comedy & Commentary

Jim Campbell: VAULT Festival (WiP 2019)

Vaultfest is quickly becoming one of my must-hit events in London. I love the fact that one minute you can be walking down a deserted South Bank on a cold mid-week night and the next you find yourself taking the... Continue Reading →

Henning Wehn: Get on with it (2018)

It had been THAT kind of day, the kind of day that makes you want your first ‘cocktail’ of the evening to be half a bottle of Zybrowka and ten packs of Paramol! Thankfully my comedy pal had other ideas... Continue Reading →

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 →

Dylan Moran: Dr Cosmos (2018)

This was a set of tickets that I was truly thrilled to get my hands on. In all of my many years of watching stand-up comedy I have somehow never managed to catch Dylan Moran live, he was slowly becoming... Continue Reading →

Strictly Carl Donnelly (2018)

Carl Donnelly has quickly become a clown that I will always try to catch at the Fringe. I first came across him for the most ridiculous of reasons, we were going through the program whilst impressively drunk and I saw... Continue Reading →

Andrew Maxwell: Shake a Leg (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 →
