Live Review: Knock2bag 10th Birthday with Sara Pascoe, Tim Key, Richard Gadd, John Kearns & Absolutely Loads More, Rich Mix

If there is a crisis on the live circuit as I've heard, nobody has told Knock2bag. Their various clubs around the capital have been doing the business for ten years and last night's show in their Shoreditch outpost was absolutely rammed. And I’m not just talking about the audience. With ten acts on the bill (maybe even more, I lost count) the dressing room was probably standing room only too.

Opinion: Edinburgh 2016 - The Year That Comedy Got Less Funny?

“It’s just not funny enough.” This was a comment that I kept hearing during the Edinburgh Fringe this year. Not necessarily about the newly-crowned Best Comedy Show winner Richard Gadd, but even he was aware that being listed in the comedy section prompted certain expectations. During his candid show he talked about mistakes he has made in his life - one of them, he quipped, was listing his triumphant Monkey See Monkey Do in the comedy section of the programme. 


Interview: Rarely Asked Questions – Richard Gadd

Richard Gadd’s Waiting for Gaddot was one of the most talked about shows at the Edinburgh Fringe this summer. It won an Amused Moose award, but how it didn’t pick up at least a Foster’s Award nomination I don’t know. Maybe it simply freaked the panel out. It’a real mindfuck of a show that relentlessly upends your expectations of what a comedy show should be about.
