Radio: Romance & Adventure with Josie Long, Radio 4

Anyone who has visited Glasgow will know what a seductive city it is. I was there for the Comedy Festival a couple of weeks ago and even though I’ve got a partner and family in London I still thought about moving there. So I can totally relate to Josie Long’s new slightly autobiographical four-part comedy about a Londoner relocating.

The Evening Standard doesn't give half stars to shows, otherwise I'd have given Josie Long four and a half stars for Cara Josephine, the same as London is Funny gave it earlier this week.

Opinion: What Changes When You See A Show More Than Once?

A few years ago I went to see one of Derren Brown’s spectacular shows in the West End. At one point during the show Brown told the mesmerised audience that if they saw the show a second time they would probably spot how he did his stunning tricks. I didn't see the show twice so I don’t know if this is true, but I presume he means that one would spot some of his misdirection and stage techniques on the second viewing.
