Review: LOL – Last One Laughing, Amazon Prime

I know that sometimes it is hard to tell the spoof reality TV shows from the real ones but wasn't there a show a while back in which a group of young good looking people were locked in a house and you got evicted if you had sex with another housemate? Well, Last One Laughing feels like it has a vaguely similar premise of stopping people doing what they normally do. Except that here you get booted off the show for gagging not shagging. One giggle, one smirk and you are out. Last one left wins $100,000.

Live Review: Sam Simmons, Soho Theatre

Usually when I see a comedy show I write a review by the next morning at the latest. I saw Sam Simmons’ latest show Not A People Person on Friday night and I have been mulling it over ever since, trying to put my finger on what was going on onstage for 60 minutes. What I do know for certain is that it is a very funny show which I would highly recommend. I’ve just been trying to decipher and decode what it all means.

Review: Sam Simmons, Soho Theatre

This was such a weird gig that my review that ran in the Standard last week (reprinted below) requires some context. It is hard to know where Sam Simmons the man ends and Sam Simmons the act begins. Throughout this show Simmons berated the audience for not getting on board despite all of the effort he was making.


Preview: The Comedy Week Ahead – Nov 17 - 23

Will there ever be any more Mighty Boosh? The door still seems to be open but whether Julian Barratt and Noel Fielding will ever enter the crazy Boosh world again together remains to be seen. In the meantime though Fielding is on his current solo tour, which is getting rave reviews and has already extended its run. It’s a combination of psychedelic sketches, nonsense characters, animations and more. Much it seems, like his recent Luxury Comedy series, which is no bad thing.
