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.
