Edinburgh Fringe Review: Adam Riches Is Coach Coach 2: Coach Harder, Pleasance Dome

It's the sequel nobody asked for but they are getting it anyway. Three years ago Adam Riches delivered Coach Coach, the redemptive tale of Eric Coach, the gum-addicted US campus trainer of a team of no-hoper volfsball (it's a bit like basketball) players. And now he's back and if anything it is funnier than the first time round.

Opinion: Why I Hate (Being Part Of) Audience Participation

Adam Riches brings his acclaimed Edinburgh show, Inane Chicanery, to the Soho Theatre this week. Riches is famous, among other things, for getting members of his audience up onstage to play an integral part in his sketches feeding him fruit juice or taking part in an impromptu hair-cutting session. It can be seat-of-your-pants stuff in numerous senses. You never know quite how far he will push things and for many, including me, you can never quite unclench your buttocks during his set for fear that you are about to be selected. 


Edinburgh Fringe Review: The Inane Chicanery of a Certain Adam GC Riches, Pleasance Dome

The thing about plucking someone from the audience to take part in your heavily immersive sketch is that you have to pick the right person. On the night I was in Adam Riches, who is usually spot-on with his choices, kicked off by pulling out the most awkward man in the room. I could see him flinch a few times when Riches got close and then after Riches tried to say they were friends he answered with a brusque “I’m not your friend. Fuck Off.” At least his victim sat down and didn’t leave the gig or punch the award-winning star.  


News: Adam Riches To Appear In West End Play

Stop!...the Play by David Spicer will open at Trafalgar Studio 2 for a 4-week season from Tuesday 2 June - Saturday 27 June. in which the worst night in the theatre becomes the most hilarious play in town.



Opinion: Comedy Goes Back In Time For Titters

Full-length comedy shows used to be the showbiz equivalent of the May fly. They did their runs in Edinburgh, London and then on tour, and then they were gone forever. The comedians moved on to their next project.

Preview: The Comedy Week Ahead – Dec 8 - Dec 14

There's always room for weird gigs in comedy and there are some partiuclarly werid ones this week. Tonight Karl Schultz and Joz Norris present their Over The Top Xmas Love-In at the Bloomsbury Theatre. While some of the alternative acts billed are simply great – Bridget Christie, Josie Long, Sara Pascoe, Tim Key, Liam Williams – this is also a line-up that boasts some of the oddest acts around.
