Review: Latitude Festival 2018 – Marcus Brigstocke

Marcus Brigstocke couldn't do his Latitude stand-up set, we were told by compere Brennan Reece, but there was a last-minute replacement called Lucifer. As you might have guessed from the picture accompanying this review Lucifer is, of course, Brigstocke in the guise of Satan, here in Suffolk in full slap and horns warming up for his Edinburgh run.

Review: Susan Calman, Latitude 2017

Susan Calman revealed at the start of her set that she has recently bought a large property. After Trump was elected she thought she might as well go out in style: "If we are going to die we might as well die in a big house." She has latterly developed a fondness for thermostats, and certainly read the temperature of the Latitude crowd well, delivering a punchy set that warmed them up nicely for headliner Dara O Briain.

Latitude Review: Reggie Watts

Reggie Watts had to play an early show at Latitude because he was doing the Royal Festival Hall in the evening. As I walked through the already-pack comedy tent the ratio of bemused to amused faces changed dramatically. Outside the tent where fans were watching his set on the video screens, there was an air of polite dismay. Who was the weird man with an extravagant afro saying “daddy, where is my heroin?” in a childlike voice.

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?

Latitude Review: Katherine Ryan

After a short, snappy appearance from Shazia Mirza – “I won’t stay long, I’m being deported in 20 minutes” – Katherine Ryan came on sporting a flowery headdress and some attitude for Latitude. Her boyfriend recently dumped her by text, she explained, tossing in the first of many Pokemon Go references I expect I’ll be hearing over the next few months.

Latitude Review: Sara Pascoe

The audience in the Latitude comedy tent can be a bit of a mixed bunch. Families having a picnic, friends sheltering from the sun or the rain or just slackers and stoners flaked out after a hard night. Not necessarily comedy fans. But it was clear by the cheer when Sara Pascoe came on that a lot of people knew her and wanted to hear what she had to say, which always makes a performer happier than confusion or indifference (which seemed to be what Nick Helm was experiencing when I arrived as he was finishing).
