Janey Godley: – Godley’s Cream 20 years and Counting 5*****

August 16, 2018 |

Janey Godley has been packing them into her gigs for as long as I can remember and given the lines of people queuing outside for ages to be sure of witnessing her latest offering, there is no drop off in … Read More

Tom Houghton :- Honourable 5****

August 16, 2018 |

Tom Houghton, or should I say the Honourable Tom Houghton tackles the sometimes difficult ‘second’ show with rich aplomb following on from his much acclaimed solo debut last year. Houghton’s father has recently been made a Lord, hence Tom’s title, … Read More

Jamie Dalgleish: From Buckfast to Middle Class 3***and a half

August 16, 2018 |

Mr Dalgleish has a Glasgow accent and good diction. This means that he can retain his accent and remain understood. He seemed a little too apologetic about some lines which he seemed to feel were met with opprobrium rather than … Read More

A Booklover’s Comedy Show 3***

August 16, 2018 |

This show has lots of potential, but a lot of it is stored in the quality of the acts and the relevance of their material. So another day may bring another, very different show.

Darren Harriot:Visceral 4****

August 15, 2018 |

The Saturday night audience waited patiently for the ex-gangster, ex bouncer, Darren to start his show. I admit to feeling slightly intimidated. We needn’t have worried because the first two minutes into his set Darren puts us at our ease … Read More

August 15, 2018 |

Commendations to Ms Palamides for creating a show and a character which explore complex issues in an interesting and engaging way. The show is intelligent and thought-provoking. But I wanted to walk out in protest so much I was almost … Read More

Stand Up, Weather Girl 3***

August 15, 2018 |

This show is warm and enthusiastic, and not the worst way to spend an hour. Ms Fraser was an English teacher, is now a supply weather presenter, and feminist. She’s struggled to reconcile these last two (presenting and feminism), mostly … Read More

Rachel Fairburn: The Wolf at the Door 4****

August 15, 2018 |

Ms Fairburn opened with a club-set joke, and I was briefly disappointed. It didn’t really match the vision that had walked out on stage. But she kept going and she explained, and it got so much better. Ms Fairburn has … Read More

The Travelling Sisters: – Toupé 5****

August 15, 2018 |


The Travelling Sisters are Lucy Fox, Laura Trenerry and Ell Sachs, three trained actors from Australia who decided that their talents, and they are multitudinous, were better served as a comedy sketch group. And who am I, or any … Read More
