Preview: This Comedian – Live, Duchess Theatre

I wrote recently about how sometimes it can be a frustrating for people who see a lot of comedy to hear the same comedians – however brilliant – do the same material every time you see them. This Monday’s all-star, must-see gig at the Duchess Theatre seems to have come up with the answer.

TV Review: Frankie Boyle's Referendum Autopsy

Is the BBC so scared of Frankie Boyle offending viewers that they have banished him to iPlayer for this one-off post-mortem? Or have they decided that now that the Scottish Referendum is done and dusted not enough people are interested in the subject to warrant putting this out in the traditional way? Or maybe it’s a sneaky plan to drive viewers online. I’d have certainly thought this semi-serious talking shop deserved to be aired on Scottish television.

Edinburgh Fringe Preview: John Robins

I was talking to Sara Pascoe yesterday about the stresses and strains of getting an Edinburgh show right in time and she said that one of the hardest aspects – apart from making it funny – was coming up with an ending.

Preview: The Week Ahead June 9 - 15

Pretty spoilt for choice at the Soho Theatre this week. As well as Stewart Lee doing yet more work-in-progress shows, there are two very different shows opening on Tuesday. I haven't seen Tom Rosenthal do stand-up for a while now but I’ve seen plenty of him on television.

Preview: The Week Ahead May 26 - June 1

It’s a good week for thinking persons’ comedy at the Soho Theatre. From Tuesday to Sunday there is an opportunity to see the hotly-tipped Michael Che.

He has recently been named as one of Rolling Stone’s ’50 Funniest People’, Buzzfeed’s ’50 Hottest Men in Comedy’, and Variety’s ‘Top 10 Comics To Watch’.
