Live Review: Al Murray Presents the Twelve Days of Christmas, Leicester Square Theatre, WC2

It's a bit of an odd thing big comedians doing special Christmas shows. In a business geared to major tours or the Edinburgh Fringe, where do you even find the time to write a special show for Christmas? Luckily Al Murray can think so fast on his feet when he is onstage he hasn't had to do a lot of new writing for this affably riotous Pub Landlord knees up.

Latitude Review: Al Murray Pub Landlord

Bridget Christie recently said that she has torn up the script for her latest show and is busily writing a new hour in time for Edinburgh to tackle her shock at the Referendum vote. Al Murray is going out on a UK tour this autumn so it’ll be interesting to see how he addresses an issue, given that “Back off Brussels” and a general air of mock Europhobia has been part of the Pub Landlord’s act for the past two decades. Has the joke bitten him on the bum?
