Review: Gein's Family Giftshop, Soho Theatre

It's been a funny old year for sketch group with attitude Gein's Family Giftshop. The trio (plus non-performing writer Kiri Pritchard McLean) lost a member just before Edinburgh and had to do some quick thinking to keep the show on the road. The result, which has now come to London, seems to work pretty well.

Live Review: Fleabag, Soho Theatre

This was interesting. I’ve never been to a performance in a theatre that felt so much like a cross between a rock gig by your favourite band and a victory lap of honour. Having gathered various stage prizes Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s play was then adapted for BBC3 and will no doubt go on to collect TV awards by the bucketload in the next few months.

Live Review: Todd Barry, Soho Theatre

Todd Barry sets out his sardonic stall with his own offstage intro. He explains that he wanted Jimmy Carr to open for him but Carr wanted £450,000. Others also wanted big money. The Smiths wanted four tickets on the guest list.

Interview: Rarely Asked Questions – Ron Funches

US comic Ron Funches is over in the UK for a short run. Maybe he doesn't have much time to tour because back in America he is increasingly in demand onscreen. He is a regular on NBC’s Undateable and appeared on The Conan O’Brien Show and The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, while you may have heard his voice on Bojack Horseman, Bob’s Burgers and Home. He also has a voiceover in the upcoming Dreamworks animated film Trolls. Ron Funches is at Soho Theatre until June 18.

Live Review: Lolly Adefope, Soho Theatre

This review first appeared in the Evening Standard here.

There is always one excellent performer that the Edinburgh Comedy Award judges seem hell bent on overlooking and in 2015 it was Lolly Adefope. The versatile young comedian gathered great reviews and enthusiastic word-of-mouth buzz yet bizarrely the panel dismissed her.

Live Review: Jena Friedman, Soho Theatre

Jena Friedman certainly looks like she has plenty of attitude in her surly press shots. And calling her show American C*nt – even with an asterisk – is quite audacious. Onstage, however, she is less in your face. There are only flashes where she justifies her own build-up.

Live Review: Nick Thune, Soho Theatre

Appearances can be deceptive. The picture of Nick Thune here suggests that he is a Victorian time traveller or some smart hipster who can’t leave the house until he has waxed his moustache. But look a little closer. Could that be a jazz cigarette he is smoking? That offers more of a clue to the kind of comedy you get from this Seattle stand-up who has made quite a few TV appearances in America and had his own Netflix special.
