Interview: Rarely Asked Questions – Anuvab Pal

The British Empire gave Indian stand-up Anuvab Pal a colonial accent and British values and suddenly left. Now he lives in contemporary India – a billion confident humans, fed on social media and American consumerism and way past their colonial hangover. How does a man still under the British influence survive in ‘New India’? Nobody knows... least of all him.


Live Review: Pieter-Dirk Uys, Soho Theatre, W1

South African Pieter-Dirk Uys has become a regular visitor to the UK over the years, but he usually comes in disguise. If he isn't dressed as his monstrous creation Evita Bezuidenhout he is doing a pin-sharp impersonation of Desmond Tutu or another famous political figure. This time round, in An Echo Of A Noise, it is a "And this is me..." performance, with Uys on his own in a t-shirt and impish grin telling his life story, which in effect is the story of South Africa since the 1940s.

Italian comedian Francesco De Carlo asks what do you discover when you decide to leave the safety of your sofa in Italy to become a foreigner in the UK, just as the UK decides to leave Europe?

As heard on ‘Welcome to Wherever You Are’ (BBC Radio 4) and seen on ‘Paul Hollywood’s Big Continental Road Trip’ (BBC2) and ‘Unspun With Matt Forde’ (Dave)

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.
