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. With ten acts on the bill (maybe even more, I lost count) the dressing room was probably standing room only too.

TV Review: Gap Year, E4, Episode 2

As anyone who watched the spoiler-packed trailer at the end of last week's opening episode set in China will know already Sean (Ade Oyefeso) doesn't become the meat in a stir fry. Instead he just gets forced to sing karaoke against his will by the people who gave him a lift – though if it was me I'd rather end up in a wok, but that's just shy old me. For Sean, the biggest challenge is hooking up with his fellow travellers again via the bullet train. Which involves finding the right bullet train in the first place.  

TV Review: Gap Year, E4

I could pretty much watch anything that Tim Key is in, so I’m glad he is in Gap Year. I’m not sure if I’d have stuck with the opening episode without his moon-faced grin popping up soon after the start as irritating hanger-on Greg.


Interview: Tim Key On New C4 Series Gap Year

The last time I saw Tim Key he was onstage at the Old Vic in Art. The next time I will be seeing him is onscreen. Key plays Greg in E4’s new eight part comedy-drama Gap Year.

Live Review: Battersea Arts Centre Phoenix Fundraiser, RFH

The fire at Battersea Arts Centre on Friday, March 13 may have been devastating, but you can rely on comedians to find the funny side. Last night’s sold out benefit at the Royal Festival Hall kicked off with Stewart Lee, who came on to a live rendition of Burning Down The House played by Kneehigh Theatre’s band. 

Review: Tree by Daniel Kitson, Old Vic

New dates announced - skip to bottom for details.

When Daniel Kitson’s two-hander with Tim Key opened at Manchester's Royal Exchange in 2013 reviews compared it to Samuel Beckett. Two comedic blokes. A tree. Some waiting. There has to be a Godot influence lurking in there. The play has finally landed in London for a prestigious run at the Old Vic and I can’t really see the connection myself. There's a bucket, but no Beckett.
