Brighton Review: Bent Double with Zoe Lyons @ Komedia 4 December 2011

Brighton Review: Bent Double with Zoe Lyons @ Komedia 4 December 2011

On Sunday night (4 December 2011) Zoe Lyons hosted the final Bent Double night of 2011 at Komedia. With it being Christmas we were treated to a sparkling line-up with more bang than a box of crackers. Whilst I was expecting Zoe to be accompanied by local musical comedienne Hannah Brackenbury and the hilarious Tom [...]

Seven ideas for advent treats in Brighton & Hove from TOM

Advent season: daily mini-chocolate-gorging, tinseling up the tree and the panicked realisation that only six more shopping days remain until Christmas. Here at TOM (The Old Market), we reckon advent should also be a time for treats, relaxation and a winding-down of the year. Here, then, is a little list of seven ways to take [...]

Brighton Comedy Festival Review: Josh Widdicombe @ The Old Market

Brighton Comedy Festival Review: Josh Widdicombe @ The Old Market

Josh Widdicombe’s stand-up set was as funny as he was charming; and my goodness he was charming! He gave us a night of great comedy at a brilliant venue. The Old Market is a splendid location for comedy and I wish I had known this back at the start of Brighton Comedy Festival. Widdicombe’s semi-observational [...]

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

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. An off-the-wall oddball Canadian comedian, Tony Law forms his stand-up from self-deprecation and lots of conversations with himself about why his comedy [...]

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

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 [...]
