On Sunday night (4 December 2011) Zoe Lyons hosted the final Bent Double night of 2011 at Komedia.

Brighton Comedy Festival Review: Isy Suttie @ The Old Market, Hove

Brighton Comedy Festival Review: Isy Suttie @ The Old Market, Hove

Last night the musical comedienne Isy Suttie brought her heart-warming tale of love and loss to Brighton’s 10th Annual Comedy Festival. Pearl and Dave is the touching story of an internet romance, reignited from the memories of a long-ago holiday at Butlins in Skegness. I had seen Isy Suttie in Peep Show and from what [...]

Brighton Comedy Festival Tony Law @ The Old Market Review

Tony Law’s show last night at The Old Market in Hove was the best stand-up show of the Brighton Comedy Festival that I’ve seen. It’s a bold statement, but I’m sticking to it.

Brighton Comedy Festival: Margaret Cho @The Dome, 16th October 2011

Margaret Cho – Way Past Rudimentary Review by Josh Barrie Seeing Margaret Cho live was an experience, to say the least. It’s all very well sitting back on the safety of your sofa watching her do stand-up on a TV show; in the flesh she evoked far more daring. A fair proportion of her content [...]

Alex Horne: Seven Years in the Bathroom at Brighton Pavilion Theatre Review

Alex Horne: Seven Years in the Bathroom at Brighton Pavilion Theatre Review

Before the show properly got going, Alex Horne made an effort to stress that this “is not a show, it is a process”. Boy was he right and we were against the clock from the start. Horne manages to take the crowd through an entire life of the average man (79 years) in one hour. [...]
