Review: Louis CK, Hammersmith Apollo

Well, he came, he saw, he played the wrong venue, didn't do much in the way of advance press, but he conquered. After all the fuss about Louis CK jumping from the Bloomsbury Theatre on his last UK visit to the Hammersmith Apollo and the O2 Arena, the reviews gave him a unanimous thumbs up.

Classic Interview: Louis CK

Louis CK plays the O2 Arena on March 20 and two shows at the Hammersmith Apollo on March 21. You can buy tickets here. That is a hell of a jump from 2008 when I interviewed him for The Times. Back then he was coming over to do some shows at the 160-seater Soho Theatre. So what went right? Well, he has a hit TV show, Louie, currently airing on Fox.

Review: Kerry Godliman, 99 Club

The best thing about Derek. It's the opinion that is already being expressed widely about Kerry Godliman's portrayal of tough-yet-good-hearted manager Hannah, and the Ricky Gervais series set in a care home only started on C4 last week following a controversial one-off last year. The imminent acclaim for Godliman will come as no surprise to regular comedy club goers.
