The Comedy Store [Sep. 3rd, 2002|11:37 pm]

Well, so much for a review of one of the other plays tonight. Oh, and an early night for that matter.... Tonight I was dragged to The Comedy Store (the proper one in Piccadilly Circus) by Alex.

In work-a-holic style we left the office at 6:30, walked there ('twas a nice evening for it), and found it first time around. Food was sensibly priced (£6 for meals), and we were able to eat at a leisurely pace before taking to our seats.

The line-up (Lee Hurst, Andy Parsons, Ian Stone, Steve Gribbin, Paul Thorne and Martin Coyote) was pretty impressive, and you couldn't fault them on their material. Jokes about Australians (there were loads of them in the front row) and RailTrack abounded, and the musical numbers put Weird Al to shame.

Some of the highlights included the musical numbers, the current affairs jokes, and the knock out "from the last 12 months of news" round (both the jokes, and the retorts to the sillier suggestions...)

All in all, a very good night. I'd definitely recommend to anyone with a night to spend in London. Well, once they've seen 125th Street that is...

What you need to do is go on a wednesday or sunday, because that's when they do the improv. Or Who's Line Is It Anyway?, as it is also known.

Oh, and by the way I hate you for having enough money to go to all these shows. You corporate whore, you. :-P

Just because I'm going to all these shows, doesn't mean I have the cash to afford it...

All being well, I should break even for this summer :(
